River Tiber

Synapses (independent)

by

River Tiber is a four- piece live band brought together by the solo efforts of Toronto native Tommy Paxton-Beesley. Synapses sidles up to you slowly, spins you around, gives you a dip and then humbly takes a bow, leaving you delightfully flummoxed, if not slightly disconcerted. It’s a maelstrom of layered electronic sounds, jarring and distorted, but Paxton-Beesley reels himself in again with admirable self-restraint, resolving the record with vivid, haunting melodies complemented by piano and ethereal vocals. If you listen, it’s easy to place it in a line-up with hip “sounds like” brethren, but River Tiber insists on a sound that is its own.
