Villa Rivercat are a five piece indie-folk outfit: Hanna Fideli Fritzell (lead vocals, guitar), William Lindberg (bass guitar, vocals), Ida Säfström (vocals, violin, harmonica), Jonathan Vester (lead guitar) & Karl Geisler (drums, percussion.) Their latest single ‘Morning Comes’ was released last month, taken from their upcoming album Days and Weeks and Hours to be released on 8th December via NIWI Records (Dream Lake).
Reminiscent of the psychedelic textures of the 60’s and 70’s, strong influences of American-Canadian country rock are apparent in their sound, and they cite inspiration from the likes of The Band and Joni Mitchell, as well as contemporary artists such as Band of Horses and Fleet Foxes.
“The song is about not being able to let go of behaviors and thoughts and how brooding can kinda consume you.” they say of the track. “Lying awake, thoughts spinning, finally realizing that the sun is going up and you’ve been awake all night. Or just that melancholic feeling of waking up before dawn looking out over the landscape as the sun is rising.”
