It was Lior that looked into my backyard and found the wonderful music that is River Tiber, by featuring the video for “The Star Falls” last month. Today, I’ve got the EP by the same name on repeat, getting lost in these lush atmospherics and “cooing wistful beauty” from 22-year-old singer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Tommy Paxton-Beesley. Multitracking all the instruments, vocals, samples and sounds on his recordings, River Tiber has emerged as an original voice in Toronto’s music scene, with a dark, gritty electronic sound that continues to evolve. “The Star Falls” EP is River Tiber‘s debut commercial release, with the full length album “Synapses” coming in 2014.
