The Saxophones – “Time Is Like a River” // Art: Rana Begum

“Time Is Like A River” is a single from The Saxophones. This particular release is actually featured within the act’s full-length studio effort, Songs of The Saxophones. Whether or not you’re listening from a vinyl record, you’ll swear you can hear cheerful crackles and timeworn love in every note.

The sound of this track has a lot of warmth to it, and the vocals are sparse, yet very rich and emotionally fueled. The Saxophones definitely mastered the “Less Is More” ethics, and they surely know a thing or two about crafting gorgeous sonic landscapes that feel highly textural and blissfully balanced. This song drifts seamlessly between old and new, making for a very special listening experience that will captivate the listeners. If you are a fan of artists as diverse as Sparklehorse, Devics, Tom Waits, Nick Drake or Portishead, you might certainly enjoy this band and this song.
