Ardyn - Over The River

The National Anthem label is a firm favourite of ours at Aesop and their release of Ardyn's debut 'Universe' EP was on repeat last winter. We're very proud to welcome the band to Aesop with the release of their new single Over The River, taken from a soon-to-be-announced news EP later in the summer. 

Ardyn have been writing lyrics that found a natural transformation into the skeletal frame of songs from the age of ten, and as such there’s an innate understanding of each other’s clear strengths. Rob, a guitarist who understands the importance and power of subtlety, is complemented by Katy’s alluring vocal and keyboard flourishes delivering their arresting sound.

Drawing on a fascination of peoples’ passing conversations and creating a world around a sound bite, Katy says of ‘Over The River’, “I wanted to imagine a couple’s conversation and the problems they were having in their relationship while transforming it into something visual linking to the natural world”. The songs that Ardyn have unleashed to date all share in a similarly opaque ebb and flow, marrying light and shade. The effect is mesmerising and “Over The River” is the pair’s most purposeful stride yet.
