2 stars Riversea are basically the British duo of keyboardist Brendan Eyre and singer/guitarist Marc Atkinson.The two of them started writing songs at the fall of 2006, most of them were completed with the help of Paul Cusick on guitars.The next year Riversea promoted the work on their first songs releasing the 5-track ''The Demo EP'', followed by a presentation of this effort as a supporting act to The Reasoning in October.

This short EP is not actually that representative of Riversea's full abilities.It is a collection of electric and acoustic short tracks with a ballad-esque still very sensitive atmosphere, where the focus relies mostly on Atkinson's excellent vocals than on the music.There are resemblances to the soft moments of Nine Stones Close, a band where Atkinson took over the lead vocals, and the overall approach comes like a combination of British Rock and Neo Prog.Calm piano-based soundscapes, background electric guitars, lots of acoustic guitar work and even some mellow orchestral strings accompany the beautiful voice of Atkinson, producing a dreamy and ethereal line of very warm ballads.

Nothing to do with rich Progressive Rock or energetic Neo Prog.This EP seems mostly as an evidence that Riversea are alive and ready to kick off and a good introduction to one of the best British singers of the new era than a presentation of Riversea's sound.Nice background music but nothing more.
