The Melbourne-based, nine-piece neo soul/indie pop outfit are the brainchild of band leader Lance Ferguson, who initially drew inspiration from the instrumental raw funk of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, but the band’s sound and style is in a constant state of evolution, keeping fans and critics alike on their toes and unable to pigeonhole.

Run River North Debuts At #3 On Heatseekers Chart, NYC Show Sold Out, SXSW Schedule Announced

 

"The eleven songs that make up this irrepressible effort come across as so exuberant, so effusive, so infused with freewheeling enthusiasm, that any attempt to typecast them inevitably comes up short. Veering from a quiet pluck to resounding refrains, the band catches fire each time out…" -- No Depression

“Snappy rock and chamber folk frames their tales of their parents' dreams and struggles to find purchase in America." – Wall Street Journal

“[Run River North] has a powerful alternative, folk foundation… The overall catchiness of the music being played is shadowed by the intimacy of their lyrical and instrumental intricacies. From fiddles to pounding base drum, this band builds, explodes, and soothes from one song to the next.” --
LA Record (live review)

LA-based sextet Run River North have much to celebrate this week. Their self-titled debut album (released February 25) landed on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart at #3, they played an album release show on March 3 to a sold-out crowd at LA’s famed Troubadour, and they have officially sold-out their upcoming New York City show at Rockwood Music Hall on April 10.

"Ghost Beach are the Venn diagram of their influences—Peter Gabriel, Talking Heads, The Police, and Daft Punk—and then some, thanks to a shitload of synths, some nostalgic 80s sonics and even the occasional reggae groove. The sound is unmistakably their own.”
VICE’s Noisey

“…catchy, buoyant beats…”
Paste Magazine

“If you can get people dancing as early as noon. You're good. They did."
NPR’s All Songs Considered

“…a radiant and catchy cut fit for a tropical island dance party.”
Consequence of Sound

Brooklyn-based duo Ghost Beach released their debut full-length album, Blonde, yesterday. Having already performed alongside The 1975, ASTR, Betty Who & St. Lucia, they recently announced a Firefly Festival appearance and national tour dates supporting RAC & The Sounds. The duo will also play the official All Things Go + Indie Shuffle and headline the official Nettwerk Party at SXSW!

Consisting of Josh Ocean & Eric “Doc” Mendelsohn, Ghost Beach have set the Internet ablaze with upbeat anthems, a preference for ‘80s synth and consistent number ones on The Hype Machine. Perfecting their unique blend of retro & futuristic soaring synth pop, the band previously shared party-starting Blonde album cuts “On My Side,” “Every Time We Touch,” a funk-infused blazer, strapped with an infectious bassline & classic house beats, and “Without You,” which features a full-on reggae vibe complemented perfectly by the duo’s distinctive, cutting-edge contemporary touch. Fans can get a taste of the Blonde LP at Paste Magazine, where it’s currently streaming in full!

"Batson's emotional vocals cut to the heart of the matter." -Complex.com

In the video for Chris Batson's new single, "Windows," the 22-year-old L.A.-based singer/songwriter/producer takes an already emotional song to another level with a concept to which anyone with a heart in their chest can relate. -BET.com

"Windows" is a deep song that deals with loss and letting go, the video exemplifies the pain and reality of love in real-life. Batson's new video features actress/model Aurelia Scheppers as the leading lady, and portrays the multiple emotions of a young couple faced with separation when the husband is called to serve his country in the military. The visual for "Windows" is the last installment from a trilogy of videos on Batson's We Got Lost Along The Way EP that follows the same female protagonist as she contends with the consequences of her actions. Chris broke down the back story on writing the song "Windows" during an extremely candid EP Confessional taped for his fans, check it out here: www.tinyurl.com/batsonconfessionals.
