about

Acclaimed music collective Jazzanova release their brand new single ‘Rain Makes The River’ from their up- coming album The Pool. Featuring the haunting vocals of Scottish singer Rachel Sermanni, the propulsive track o ers an intriguing snapshot of the band’s musical deve- lopments since the release of their last original album 10 years ago.

This most emotive of singles – co-written with Serman- ni and recorded, sampled, played, and programmed in Jazzanova’s Berlin studio – begins with moody drums and coarse hits that set a sombre mood. Heavy piano chords join the fray and add to a sense of forlornness. Then Sermanni’s crystal clear vocals cut through it all; soft and delicate they create an honest intimacy – sin- ging about staying with your loved one through tough times. And suddenly the absorbing downbeat stops sounding so heavy and becomes the solid foundation for a united strength, accentuated with bright musical touches that leave a lasting impression.

Over the past decade the German group, consisting of Alexander Barck, Claas Brieler, Jürgen von Knoblauch, Stefan Leisering and Axel Reinemer, have worked on a multitude of projects. They’ve toured live with the band, hosted radio shows, DJed, remixed tracks by Hugh Ma- sekela, Joe Bataan, Aron Ottignon, Malika Ayane (and many more), curated their labels Sonar Kollektiv and Notes On A Journey and recorded a live studio sessions album of some of their most beloved work. It’s been 23 years since they first got together, and this new album draws from all those years of experience while exploring new territories. The whole makes a brilliant teaser of what we can expect from the forthcoming album.

lyrics

YOU CAN HIDE THE STORM INSIDE BUT I CAN SEE THE RAIN FALL
I SEE IT ALL
YOU CAN KEEP IT ALL FOR SLEEP BUT I CAN SEE YOU TOSS AND TURN I FEEL YOU BURN
TEMPER TEMPER I CAN TAKE DESASTER IN YOUR WAKE I’M WITH YOU
I LOVE YOU STILL
YOU EXPECT THAT I WILL TURN TURN AWAY
I’M WITH YOU AND ILL STAY
I’LL STAY
YOU MIGHT TELL THE STORY WELL
BUT TRUTH CAN ONLY EVER BE YOUR OWN
YOU’VE ALWAYS KNOWN
CLOSE YOUR EYES FROM THE DARKLING SKIES I REMAIN A CLEAR BLUE
TO HOLD ONTO
TEMPER TEMPER I CAN TAKE DESASTER IN YOUR WAKE I’M WITH YOU
I LOVE YOU STILL
YOU EXPECT THAT I WILL TURN TURN AWAY
I’M WITH YOU AND ILL STAY
I’LL STAY
IF RAIN MAKES THE RIVER RAIN NEEDS TO FALL
I’M WITH YOU
SEE IT ALL
IF RAIN MAKES THE RIVER RAIN NEEDS TO FALL
I’M WITH YOU
SEE IT ALL
