CRITIC REVIEWS

Exclaim!

With the sweet, melancholic tones it emotes, River Tiber's debut feels thoroughly, truly blue-violet. Indigo indeed.

Pitchfork

Overall, Beesley successfully gathers all the ambient influence of his city into a set of sounds that harnesses many of the best things we might expect from music in Toronto. It’s cynically romantic, urbane, and just a tad bit mopey.

NOW Magazine

Each aspect of Indigo is impressively mixed to draw the ear to a particular quality of sound or turn of phrase. It’s a slow burn, but not self-indulgent.

Do not get me wrong this is a good album,

But wow some songs seem but fungus growing alongside other songs here. That is the difference in quality of the songs found here.

Understandably this can happen with a self-released debut, and this album definitely plants the seeds for what will no doubt be a huge sophomore album.

One thing this album does entirely succeed in, is setting a mood, and this will no doubt be what River Tiber becomes known for.

Didn't think I would like this, but was pleasantly surprised. Some nice instrumentals and chilled out vocals that don't get annoying.

Favorite Tracks: Acid Test, Midnight, Barcelona, Flood
Least Favorite: West or Clarity

A soulful, chilly blend of electronica and R&B.
