Track Review: By The River // The Crystal Teardrop

The Crystal Teardrop has a knack for creating beautiful indie pop melodies. I’m excited to see 

what their new song “By The River” is like.

Oh my god, I’m pretty much in love with the Eastern influences that dominate this song. Can they pull off every genre? The sitar meshes really well with the guitar at 1:23. It reminds me of Kula Shaker and the Beatles. Psychedelic heaven. The drumming towards the end is fantastic as well. 

The Crystal Teardrop are showing how brilliant their songwriting is on this release. I loved “By the River” and can’t wait to see what they do next.
