Product Description

Product Description

Faith & Patience - they are the virtues that have seen Electric River through years of highs and lows, from busking in the streets of Kent and playing toilet venues around the country through to playing to thousands on the main stage at this year's Beautiful Days festival. Rewind to a year ago though and it was then that, after meeting their new manager who encouraged Electric River to write the songs they wanted to play and that came from their heart, that the songs of 'The Faith & Patience' took shape. From the soaring opening track 'Calling Out' through to the closing masterpiece that is Watersong - with their new album, Electric River show maturity, soul and honesty few their age possess. The Faith & Patience was produced by Peter Miles (The King Blues, We Are The Ocean) and mastered at Abbey Road Studios by Frank Arkwright (Arcade Fire, Frank Turner).

Review

Kent rockers knock their debut out of the park... As the air-raid siren and echo riff of Calling Out crash into sinewy, soul-punk crunchers like Chorus Of Fire and Keep The Engine Burning, you smell definite promise, and while front-loaded debuts are common, Electric River never run out of juice. Belter follows belter, from the urgent, doomed Hold Your Nerve to The Fixer, with its peach of a chorus and eloquent Blair-bating lyric. Electric River's key influences - Pearl Jam, The Clash, Bruce Springsteen - suggest a band desperate to mean something beyond throwaway drive-time ear-fodder. One album out of the blocks, they're well on course - 8/10 --Henry Yates, Classic Rock, June 2014

I saw these guys as 'support' for another band 'Toseland'. They were only halfway through their stint when I turned to my two friends and said "I don't know about you guys but I've had my money's worth already". They virtually played through the entire album, sadly I hadn't got the cash on the night to buy one (as they would have signed it) but I bought two off Amazon the next day, one for me one for my pal. I've bought further copies since to give away - I know I could 'rip and burn' a copy but that doesn't do the band any good! This album is great, I can't compare it to anyone because these fellas have their own sound - and it's soooo good. This music will appeal to all ages, sadly I was the oldest 'rocker' in town at the gig but I loved it as did everyone else; I do a few rock gigs and this band got the best response from an audience for a support band that I've seen in many a long year. I'd happily pay again to watch them as support, but take it from me, they should be headlining in bigger venues before too long, they're that good.

I heard about Electric Rivier from those nice people at Classic Rock magazine. Downloaded the E.P. which is fantastic, but this album is just brilliant. Best new band I've heard in ages. There's no bad tracks, not even any good ones..they're all great!! Really powerful vocal, great guitar sound and tight drums and bass. Don't try to listen sitting down..you need to stand up and fill your lungs and sing along! Superb stuff.

Brilliant, every song is a winner.
After seeing this band live a couple of times and then checking out their YouTube videos, buying this cd was a 'no brainer'! The songs themselves are excellent but it's the exuberance of the playing that stands out so much for me, it sounds like the band believe in the songs 100% and this enthusiasm is just infectious. For me, that's what good music is all about!
I heartily recommend this cd to anyone who enjoys great guitar music.

A superb album by a great bunch of lads. Every track rocks. If you get the chance to catch them live, do it! Really hope this album catches the publics imagination and they take off. They ate a breath of fresh air.

A very nice discovery! I'd heard that these guys have been making quite a stir on the London live scene so given my love for new music I've bought the debut release on recommendation and having heard a few tracks online.
First impression …wayhoooooo!!!! Electric river are a breath of fresh air!

Lots of influences on this CD and I love it… it’s a CD without a single bad track which is pretty impressive from a debut album. There are some chilled, reflective moments made all the more moving by some provoking lyrics – these guys have got something to say… but then there are some proper, fist in the air anthem moments like on ‘In Your Name’ and ‘Keeping the engines turning’ – play it on a Friday night after work and you’ll be in the vibe and ready for the weekend!
This album has an immense energy and that can’t be faked.

So, if you’re a fan of the Clash, The Killers, Biffy Clyro, well it's all those rolled into one band only fresher. There are many great comparisons, so just buy this album and listen - and bask in the musical glory of cracking drums, great guitars, explosive vocals & catchy lyrics, surely these are the next big thing! A great purchase.. recommended.
