Dry the River

British-born Dry the River matched folk-roots with rock influences and masterful vocals in their debut album: Shallow Bed. The album garnered success when the single, “No Rest” surpassed 1 million hits on YouTube.  Now the group is releasing a new collection of their unique sound in August with their second album: Alarms in the Heart. For fans of groups like Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, and Mumford and Sons, Dry the River is quickly making its name as the newest folk-inspired cult classic ready to burst onto the scene in a big way.
