New Noise Praises Fruit Bats’ “Memorable and Buoyant” New Album – Most Added At NACC

In its review, New Noise Magazine writes, “Reemerging with the release of their tenth album, A River Running to Your HeartFruit Bats have hit a new ripened sound that we’ve been waiting for. The album is a true expression of home, belonging, and emotion—common themes they often write about but have perfected this time… Eric D. Johnson has always paid attention to his environment, painting landscapes in his tracks. However, this album delivers something slightly different and more nostalgic– exploring what it means for a home to be just beyond a place… Each song on this album is memorable and buoyant. It’s rare that an album can foster such good feelings throughout the whole discography, but A River Running to Your Heart keeps the same spiritedness from the first note to the last. Full of vim and vigor, this album feels like the point Fruit Bats has been trying to reach throughout their career.” Read the full review here.
