“Gentle, thoughtful compositions that mix straightforward observation with naturalistic imagery and philosophical inquiry.” – Uncut (Discovered Album Review 8/10)

“Fuses folk-rock’s past with its future. Red River Dialect is a language open to all.” – The Quietus

“Strangely life-affirming sorrow … a tribute to the power of healing and reconciliation.” – All Music

Red River Dialect will release their fourth album, Broken Stay Open Sky, on 2 February via Paradise of Bachelors. After presenting the “rhapsodic” (NPR Music) lead single “Kukkuripa,” the band now shares “Gull Rock described by Uproxx as; “Frenzied and fantastic. It’s a nearly six-minute suite that alternates white noise with sweet, intricate harmonies, and an unrelenting pressure between the two. Songwriter David Morris credits his spiritual practice as the inspiration for these sweeping, massive songs that incorporate old world folk and the tension of noise and drone music with equal force.” 

As songwriter David Morris explains; “The cover photograph portrays Gull Rock, as seen from Trebarwith Strand in North Cornwall. Once I had seen this image, the work of Dayna Cowper, it would not leave my imagination, and I hoped it could become a part of this album. Initially I wanted to conceal it inside the album’s sleeve; a double-lurking cave on an inside horizon of childhood memories. But it would not stay hidden, and strangely it shone through every other proposal for the cover.”

The London-based Red River Dialect (with Cornish roots) brings a windswept energy and daylight to a contemplative, gorgeously rendered suite of songs about inhabiting the landscape, and our bodies, in joy and pain alike. Informed by songwriter David Morris’s spiritual practice, and recorded largely live in the studio, this is the band’s most ambitious and emotionally affecting work to date: atmospheric but deeply rooted, equally concerned with investigating the concrete and the cosmic, both quiet details of the everyday and looming matters of faith.

The band will be touring the UK in January supporting labelmates The Weather Station and playing selected headline dates.
