Flashback - the Way Music Should Be
Prepare to experience a flashback with a fresh new group called Dry Riser.

Nik Ledgard, Matt Lintott , Jack Driver, and Pete Bembridge coming together as Dry Riser gives a sound that is a folksy rock with a touch of the Doors and a dash of the 70s Beatles and harmony you don't often hear in today's music.

Hailing from London, they are just now receiving long over due attention here in the US as they do in the Uk.
Being from England, you would hope to here the British invasion sound, and Tangerine does have that sweet English flair.

They jokingly to themselves as the "best kept secret of Britain" , which may be true, but it only because the music connoisseurs of London know once the world hears their unique sound, the second wave of the British invasion will start. Sorry England, but their music is too good for you not to share.

Dry Riser are one of those bands that have figured out how to spin the 60’s influence into something fresh on today’s mainstream, and the band’s “Two Many Chiefs” EP is certifiable proof PEV Magazine 27/01/10

Their first release, the 4 track EP entitled 'Two Many Chiefs' is reminiscent of the 1960's yet you can't quite figure out who they sound like. It is refreshing to hear a band drawing so much inspiration from their influences whilst retaining their own uniqueness. -Mike Grady
Hypnotically beautiful… - Subba Culture

All 4 Tracks are masterpieces and are a window into the bright future of Dry Riser -The Gig Guide

A band that can soothe you or whip you into frenzy with equal skill isn't always an easy thing to come by. Check these guys out now. – CMJ
Don’t get me wrong – we’ve featured some amazing European talent, but to be able to check out a band like Dry Riser (the latest group to answer our XXQ’s) in the flesh – that be friggin’ awesome. PEV

Lyrics

Rushing

Written By: Lintott/Ledgard

Oh rushing away rushing the day
Missing the way around us
Rushing away missing the day
Rushing away
Moving fast as lightening
Missing what the world is trying to say
All that I’ve been all that I’ve seen
All the conversations an all imaginations we’ve seen

Rushing the day rushing away miss the way around us
Rushing the day rushing away
Moving fast as lightening
Missing what the world is trying to say
All that I’ve been all that I’ve seen
All the combinations an all imaginations we’ve seen

Slow down oh we are not a machine
We all have our dreams that fuels imagination

Slow down oh we are not a machine
We all have our dreams that fuels imagination

Myself

Written By: Lintott/Ledgard

Myself

She asked me what you would like to make
When I smiled she just walked away
She asked how would like to play with me sometime
Well she smiles as she walks away
She’s the one who got away oh it’s a crying shame
She’s the one who got away oh it’s a crying shame

Well I wanted to ask her name
Said she wanted to know my pain threshold
Well I wanted to ask her name
Would you think of yourselves as vain?
Sometime is that all you have got to say

She’s the one who got away oh it’s a crying shame
She’s the one who got away oh it’s a crying shame
I want you to myself
To myself
Every time I think of you
Make me feel what no one knew
Every time I look at you
She’s the one who got away oh it’s a crying shame
She’s the one who got away oh it’s a crying shame

A Lot For her to Take

Written By: Lintott/Ledgard

It was a lot for her to take
I want to be somewhere else
It was a lot for her to take
I want find out for myself

Just a little bit off this day
Fighting all but you want complain
Lost out all im told
Neither part of this is wrong
Never felt beside me so
It needn’t be this way
Two smallest pieces
Left on a boat without a sail

It took a lot for him to say
In being close yeah
So far away
But have lost all that we made
Seen from above
We make the same mistakes
It was a lot for her to take

Just a little bit off this day
Fighting all but you want complain
Lost out all im told
Neither part of this is wrong
Never felt beside me so
It needn’t be this way
Two smallest pieces
Left on a boat without a sail
Oh yeah yeah yeah
It was a lot for her to take
I want to be somewhere else
It was a lot for her to take
I want to find out for myself
It was a lot for her to take

Just a little bit off this day
Fighting all but you want complain
But I lost out all im told
Neither part of this is wrong
Never felt beside me so
It needn’t be this way
Two smallest pieces
Left on a boat without a sail
Oh yeah yeah yeah
