MOONRIIVR Shares “Mother To Me”Shares “Mother To Me”

MOONRIIVR, the quartet of vocalist Gavin Gardiner (The Wooden Sky), guitarist “Champagne” James Robertson (Lindi Ortega), bassist Ben Whiteley (The Weather Station), and percussionist Lyle Molzan (Kathleen Edwards) recently released their idiosyncratic indie-folk debut LP, titled Volume 1. Today, the band is releasing a video for their track, “Mother To Me”, which was featured on the aforementioned LP.

“This song celebrates those relationships in life that are strong enough to withstand even the fiercest gales.” said Gardiner of the track. “I’ve been learning to accept that time changes everything and sometimes you just have to be ok with where you are today and let tomorrow be tomorrow.”

Crafted with a Tascam 388 tape recorder, Vol.1 is representative of an amalgam of influences, laced with sweetly reverberating slide guitars, wonky string synths, and nimble percussive environments. MOONRIIVR’s knack for creating sonic worlds that are at once lightly trippy and wholly inviting means that, as much as Volume 1 draws on inspirations from decades past, it maintains a pleasing, distinctly out-of-time feel. The band’s album rollout included tracks like, “Midnight at the Garden Hotel,” “Bachelor Nation,” and “The Hypnotist,” which all released alongside their own videos.
