Rudden+Bridge : Indie Britannia
Striking collaborators, Rudden+Bridge, bring a modern authenticity, passion and originality to the British singer-songwriter scene. Influenced by acts like Simon & Garfunkel, Thom Yorke, The Verve and Nick Drake and recently described as “ones to watch”.
The acoustic pair write about life experiences with a fresh or unique perspective. Their music showcases ingenuity by fusing their unique blend of folk, pop and rock to create a new but familiar sound.
The passion for music is reflected in their songwriting along with impressive vocals setting them apart from their contemporaries. Bridge displays unique and subtle vocal inflections in his acoustic Pop/Folk material reminiscent of Guy Garvey and Chris Martin.
Their tracks “You Saw Something” and “Calling” stand out with unique raspy vocals, catchy melodic lines and lyrics. “Lost At Sea” just shows you what great storytellers and artists Rudden+Bridge are as the music fills your senses.
They capture the longing for love, conflicted with the fear of the loneliness. There are so many more layers of meaning and symbolism in the clear, clean lyrics of all of their musical works.
