Oakland’s Waterstrider Releases New Single “Redwood”

02/05/2014

Hot on the heels of their re-imagining of Little Dragon’s “Twice,” comes another release from East Bay standouts Waterstrider. “Redwood” finds the band leaving behind their afro-pop roots for a bolder, more expansive sound. Drums boom, guitars twist like vines around the bones of the song, and Nate Salman’s voice pulls at your ears and your heartstrings alike.

After the jump, watch a video of Waterstrider performing “Redwood” on the shores of Oakland’s Lake Merritt, and the upcoming “Nowhere Now” in a farmer’s market.
