“The River” has to be our favorite tune from the EP as it has it all: wonderfully deep lyrics, great guitar chord progressions, catchy guitar lead melodies, the ethereal vocals we mentioned earlier, enticingly harmonies provided from the backup vocals, and the sensation of purity. As any river, the flow stay consistently flowing in one direction and no one can change its destiny, it stays pure and true. Oh, did we forget to mention the keyboard is also being utilized to provide support to the guitar melodies? It’s just an all-around great song that truly embodies what folk/indie/alternative music strives to achieve. Be prepared to lose yourself in the soundwaves of Eva & The Oak’s new EP, “Floriography”.
