Strawberry Fields – River’s Gone Dry
Strawberry Fields music is a strange blend of the old and the new,
of rock guitars and soft keyboards,loops and psychedelic soundscapes.
Strawberry Fields is a rock band from Poland. Created in 2008 by Wojtek Szadkowski (Collage, Satellite, Peter Pan) fascinated by the voice of Robin (Marta Kniewska).
On the band’s debut album entitled “Rivers Gone Dry” Robin is supported by the intelligent guitar play of Sarhan Kubeisi (Satellite), simple yet effective bass lines of Jarek Michalski (Satellite), and Wojtek Szadkowski’s keyboards and drums. Guest appearance was done by keyboardist Krzys Palczewski (Satellite) Who is now a member of the band.
It’s a perfect album for the lovers of such bands as Goldfrapp, Portishead or Massive Attack. Marta’s voice will also satisfy fans of Anneke van Giersbergen (The Gathering/ Agua De Annique).
But you can find strong pop melodies and a bit of Clannad within.
The music has a poppy,catchy feeling.
On the whole this is a fine and pleasant album too listen too.
