|Young Waters’ twisted neo-folk is a tapestry of emotionally powerful vocals, stirring harmonies, lyrical strings and finely mastered acoustic guitar. Their exhilarating rhythms and intricate melodies, coupled with a repertoire that combines startling original material with unique arrangements of traditional folk songs, makes for a captivating stage presence. This young band is set to make a big impact in 2018.
They announced news of their self-titled debut album by sharing the video for their new single “Swimming Pool”, premiered at CLASH, who call it “a beautiful offering that is pastoral of arrangement and dexterous of lyric.”
