It has been an exciting year for brother and sister duo Ardyn. As well as stacks of live shows (see our review of their Bristol gig as well as our interview) both on their own, at festivals, and supporting Wild Beasts, Katy and Rob Pearson also released EP The Valley, which contained four cracking songs that demonstrate the diverse range of the pair’s talent.
For us, Over The River is the real highlight. From its slow, steady and almost other-worldly build-up to its accomplished and beautifully arranged conclusion, it is one we still keep on coming back to many months after first hearing it. Performed live it is equally mesmerising – we recommend you make it a 2017 priority to see the Gloucestershire-based band for yourself if you get the chance.
In the meantime, we’re proud to have this wonderful song at the top of our list of very favourite tracks of the year.
