Luke Reed :: "Rivers of Love"
Rooted in a Reading Rainbow synth-loop, Luke Reed builds latest single "Rivers of Love" like a dreamy ripple. The arrangement unfolds evenly, a measured and echoing world full of perfect and magical physics. Maybe a bit of form meeting function, Reed wades through the title lyric, "Rivers of love / I have swam through" at a pace that would even try the patience of a word like "languid". It's all beautiful, watery stuff, a group of shimmering forevers pushed out on the surface, floating into the distance on a narrow ribbon of liquid.
