Porteau are an Indie folk duo based in Vancouver, Canada made up of Victoria Williams and Craig Stevenson. Today I’ll be reviewing their new single ‘River Song’ the first track off their debut album ‘Water’s Gate’ which was out on March 15th 2019.
‘River Song’ opens with vibrant electronic chimes, that slowly mellow out only to be replaced by Victoria’s phenomenal vocals that just gave me chills. I’ve always loved slow songs, they are excellent for introspection and daydreaming, and this song works well for this, but it’s also so gripping, that it’s not something you could easily ignore, it’s not just background music, it has raw substance and real emotion.
So that’s what I thought of Porteau’s single River Song which you can check out on Spotify. Also make sure and check out the full album. You can also support the band by following them on Facebook and Twitter.
