Bio

A three-piece outfit that’ll punch you right in the gut. Tightly arranged odd time signatures dissolve into soaring choruses which unapologetically push the boundaries of the alternative folk genre, whilst maintaining a soulful beckoning of the dark and the beautiful. Like crying whilst dancing..

August River Band offers a wild and beautifully juxtaposed chemistry between the tortured singer-songwriter, the classically trained violinist and the hard-hitting rock and roll drummer. Major influences range from The Police, Dave Matthews, Midnight Oil, Edward Elgar, Foo Fighters and Radiohead.
