Stream “Deep River”
“‘Deep River’ is the rowdy dystopian dream-state adventure of two people In love,” writes Ida Mae. “It was written in one sitting as a stream of consciousness storybook about two people leaving their home to try and make something of themselves, only to find themselves lost in a system that is out of their control. It’s scraps of conversations we’ve overheard, experiences with people we’ve met, in sprawling cities to ghost towns in forgotten America. All the time the couple are framed by the modern world they’re living in, the River, a life giving image of the natural world used as a vehicle of industrialisation.”
“Deep River” follows the single “Raining For You,” which Wide Open Country acclaimed as “yet another well-crafted country-blues cut, driven by married couple Chris Turpin and Stephanie Jean’s tight, wistful harmonies.”
