Dry the River will release their second album, Alarms in the Heart, through Transgressive Records on Monday August 25th 2014.
Produced by Charlie Hugall (Florence and The Machine, Ed Sheeran), PaulSavage (Mogwai, Franz Ferdinand) and Peter Miles (We Are The Ocean, Futures, The King Blues) and with arrangements and strings from Valgeir Sigurðsson (Sigur Rós, Björk), the resulting 10-track album is bold, expansive, confident and cohesive – an undeniable step up in both diversity and volume from their critically acclaimed debut, Shallow Bed (March 2012).
The first track from the album to be unveiled, Gethsemane, uncovers the spiritual heart of the record, delivering a Buckley-esque narrative: “Excavating down you’d find the drowning and the drowned / And then there’s us, babe.”

The album also features the guest vocal of The Delgados’ Emma Pollock on Roman Candle.
