FREE MP3: WATERS – O Holy Break of Day


WATERS (the capitals are important), the new project from former Port O’Brien front man Van Pierszalowski, has revealed a brand new track ‘O Holy Break of Day’ this week, and you can download it for free using the link below!

UK dates have also been announced for this September, including a show with the woman of the moment, EMA. Taken from WATERS forthcoming album ‘Out in the Light’, ‘O Holy Break of Day’ is a stirring, grand affair that sits perfectly alongside the hugely catchy, raw and impassioned sing-a-long ‘For The One’, that topped the blog charts and spread like wildfire mere weeks ago.

Mixing fuzzy, pealing guitars and crashing drums with dynamic, indelible melodies, ‘Out in the Light’ ranges from barrelling, grunge-sheathed pop to easy, haunting tracks that soar and rolling, catchy anthems accompanied by Pierszalowski’s sanded, reedy tenor. With lyrics concerning starting over, jealousy, and yearning for an easy, steady life, the album’s intimacy and emotional intensity is underlined by John Congleton’s (St. Vincent, Explosions In The Sky, The Walkmen) stark production. After Port O’Brien disbanded, Pierszalowski landed in Oslo, Norway, seeking solace and space, and after some time began writing again. Before long he was heading back to the States to fuel his inspiration further and feeling recalibrated and reinvigorated. Once back in Oslo, Pierszalowski put together a band and they practiced every day for two months before heading to Dallas, TX, to record with Congleton. Entering the studio with a clear picture of exactly how the songs should sound, Pierszalowski and his band finished ‘Out In The Light’ over a mere 10-day recording session. The new songs Pierszalowski wrote were intensively thought-out and pieced together over the year, a new contrast to the frequently loose, punchy anthems of his previous band. He knew he wanted a bigger sound for his new project (which by now he’d dubbed WATERS) than he could create on his own. You can catch WATERS performing on the following dates:


13th: London, The Old Blue Last

14th, London, Cargo (w/ EMA)
