Taking influence from tales of Greek mythology, Norwegian group I See Rivers share their melodic new single “How”.

Returning with yet another glacial offering, the angelic I See Rivers share the fourth instalment from their forthcoming debut album. Carried with the trio's infamous harmonies, "How" is a fluid piece of soothing electro-pop.

Best known for their lustrous melodies, "How" exhibits the superlative songwriting craftsmanship of the three-piece. Peppered with fluffy electronics, the glistening track reflects a turbulent love story through the protagonists Perseus and Andromeda, both icons of Greek mythology. With oscillating synth patterns and layered drum beats, the single is an incredibly addictive earworms.

Explaining the narrative, I See Rivers explain: "Although drawn from the Greek myth, the deeper and more personal message of the song is about the need to make sense of things whilst battling the fear of losing face and understanding.

"Through Andromeda's eyes, the song echoes her deep understanding of her connection to Perseus and her belief that even through hardships and turmoil, they have always been destined to be together,” the band continue. “Even after death, she and Perseus are to spend the rest of their existence as constellations in the sky."

“How” is available now via with the debut album to be released later this year. Follow I See Rivers on Instagram.
