Tight-as-fuck grooves, flanked by smart-arse chops and hemmed in by super-assured vocals, The Rivers are the sound of inner city life channelled through the lifeblood of the English coast. Fresh out of the blocks from Brighton and armed with a workers ethic, these five young diamonds have surfaced out of the pastel seaside glamour of their hometown, carving themselves deep into the souls of the South East, breaking their backs to bring home-grown anthems such as 'Lust', 'The Skint Song' and 'Paper Bones' to the big smokes. Their cards are on the table - plain and simple. They write about what they know and what life deals them. Late night talks about the dole, girls, fags and booze juxtaposed against social observations, relationships, hope and fears enable The Rivers to peddle their instantaneous hooks and skanking rhythms. The band have now ceased to be known as the rivers, and are now performing under the name 'More Than Thieves' They officially became their new personality with a Spotify Live session, which includes the reworked version of the Rivers B-side 'Fold For You'
