It has been an odd sort of musical upbringing for the five sons of Dry the River. Whilst today their rattly alt-folk is a rag-tag mixture of Americana, gospel and indie rock, their early collaborations were born of a shared infatuation with late 90s post-punk and progressive rock. Singer/guitarist Peter Liddle believes this unlikely marriage has been a formative influence: “I think what we always admired about bands like At the Drive-In, Glassjaw, Refused, is the consumptive energy that they had – post-punk is a really expressive, heart-on-sleeve kind of musical heritage and I think we still write and play that way.
