a benignly british record, that has a texture more in common with the learned likes of us contemporaries bill callahan, justin vernon & will oldham.

the 10 track record marks a fresh perspective for matt hegarty's songwriting since his first ep releases through the fledgling communion label back in 2011. building on those primarily acoustic early outings, the new sound is enriched with the buzz & hum of both electronic & live beats. single 'pale sun rose' is an oak-smoked introduction to hegarty, but the track's overall atmosphere & drama is replicated throughout the whole record. other rivers is a moving, full-bodied piece of work that requires an investment of time to truly appreciate its deftness of touch, but crucially it introduces a new british songwriter with an ear for something more wholesome than simply a keening melody or two.
