GALAXIES IN THE RIVER play music with a pulse, an ebb and flow-sometimes fast and sometimes slow. They feel most at home in the instrumental vintage grooves of the late 60's/70's hard blues, psychedelic bands of that time. Caring little for trends, ego head trips and catering to the flavour of the day, they seek to explore they're own vision- with a purist, kind of outer style. They walk the outer style.
"Toronto-based band Galaxies in the River harken back to the days when heavy rock music filled your veins with passion. With influences ranging from Captain Beyond to Hendrix the all-instrumental vibes reek of pure seventies heavy rock, complete with glorious solos, psychedelic mind-trips and funky desert rock grooves. The warbled wah-wah and muddied heaviness undermine the otherwise clean production and impressive musicianship. This is a band that deserves your attention."
