London Four-Piece RIVER FURY Release Video For
WASTEFULDebut EP 5 Year Plan due 30th November
On Painted Halo Records

10th October 2018
London quartet River Fury are set to make their grand entrance on 30th November, with the release of their debut EP 5 Year Plan on Painted Halo Records.The band recently premiered the commanding and anthemic first single from the record Wasteful, via Clash Magazine. Today, they release the official video for the single. Vocalist and guitarist Patric Nutton explains, “Far from being a call to hedonism, the song slyly mocks that and is more about the process of growing up. It’s hard sometimes to exactly state the meaning, because to my mind the reckless abandon of a guitar riff or throwing shapes or having sex even are much more meaningful than simple wasteful hedonism. The video vaguely nods to that, the blue bottle as a metaphor for some of life’s rites of passage, a truth serum that invites the band and listener to lose themselves. The objects and scenes shown in the clip have various symbolic levels, and we’re very much enjoying the idea of letting the viewer figure out what each means, especially the erotic raw chicken massage

River Fury – ‘Wasteful’ (Official Video)

River Fury are Dan Howe and Patric Nutton (both on vocals and guitar), joined by the formidable rhythm talents of Callum Hayes (Chaser/Sweetheart of the Rodeo) on bass and vocals, and Andrew Gallop (Fortnight in Florida/Orlando Seal and the Swell) on drums and percussion. Hailing from Melbourne and various part of the UK, River Fury formed from London’s open mic circuit. Sonically sitting somewhere between early 90’s grunge, 80’s indie and melodic post-rock, their breed of anthemic pop rock features elements of math and psych, and is played with both volume and vitality.

Forthcoming EP 5 Year Plan was recorded at London’s Hermitage Studios. It features production from  Ed Ripley (Goat Girl). Pat Nutton explains that the concept behind the title “revolves around a person who can’t seem to get with the idea of settling down with a plan for his life, and instead rues it.” Commenting on the overall sound of the EP, Pat says “We wanted to make a fairly big sounding rock record, one that didn’t shy or mince its riffs or words. When we wanted to make it loud we made it loud and when we wanted it a bit more subtle and soothing we did that. Some of my other musical exploits are a bit more rough and ready and lo-fi but we didn’t feel the need for holding back from layering harmonies or conversely being discordant”.
