Porteau Debut Gorgeous Video for “River Song”
Porteau outdo themselves once again with the dreamy new single “River Song.” The couple who is heavily influenced by not only traditional folklore but the West Coast landscape as well, create a stunning and enchanting musical combination that will entice your very ears. The alt-folk track plays like a dream, with a video in tow that is equally as haunting.
The creation of duo Victoria Williams and Craig Stevenson, their harmonious vocals bring the piece to life. Collaboration between the couple came about by happenstance. Victoria saw a painting of Andromeda by Gustave Doré and was instantly captivated. She asked Craig if he could help her write music that sounded like the painting looked – cold, urgent, yet liberating. A mutual understanding and inspiration was found from this piece of art. It was a driving and unifying force that was the genesis of Porteau. Using this as a catalyst, a record naturally revealed itself. Sounds which had been independently cultivated now flowed together and a confluence of ideas began to occur.
With 2019 slated to be a big year for the duo, we are on the edge of our seats for more Porteau to come…
