I'm really digging the latest from American folk act River Whyless. "Van Dyke Brown" is a uptempo folk number with an African influence. Think Paul Simon meets George Ezra with a little folk thrown in for good measure.
"Van Dyke Brown" is the first piece of new music from the group in 2018 and hopefully signals a new album is on the way soon. Talking about the song with WUNC North Carolina Public Radio bassist and vocalist Dan Shearin had this to say about the track:
This song stems from coming of age after a move to Asheville, NC — finding oneself, finding love, and coming to terms with death — discovering there is cause for celebration in all parts of life.
