Mellow organic musicianship and unmistakable, raspy and expressive vocals take us slowly but surely through this Western-style venture of rising passion and intensity – Krystal Rivvers introduce the brilliantly stylish Mexicana Blues.
Bringing forth the coolness and swagger Johnny Cash, or timeless songs like Red Right Hand, alongside a fresh vocal character and brilliantly upfront bassline, Krystal Rivvers capture attention with ease. The naturally seductive embrace of this soulful Americana journey grips listeners almost instantly.
Increasingly creative, featuring a fine use of contrast between moments of subtle contemplation and those that hit with decidedly more striking impact, Mexicana Blues goes on to weave in a fully distorted instrumental section, complete with unexpected layers of horn and even a guitar solo.
The entire arrangement builds upon the already intriguing sound of the band, that voice and the story, by consistently reinforcing the rising emotion of both.
Emerging complete with an equally captivating set of visuals, Mexicana Blues really does take you there – delivering a sense of timeless escapism, which proves as cinematically vast as it is simple and appealing for its live, raw musicianship.
