“…we’ll rise where shadows fall / and we’ll fly where money crawls / looking out for a higher love / not gonna fall, gonna rise above”
Described by the band as “a ruthlessly concise 10-track album with no verbal or musical self-indulgence,” Rise Above continues the Oysters’ journey into the new century. It’s a collection of memorable rock songs with deep roots. Oysterband have forged a style that owes much to the traditional music of Britain yet rarely draws directly from it. Eight original songs (and two trad.) built on integrity, passion and human emotion.
