By The Rivers - Don't Say You Love Me

Don’t Say You Love Me’ started life as a text from a girl stating she loved the founder and drummer Jordan Birtles. After he proclaimed, “don’t say you love me”, the captivating chords and the infectiously addictive vocal melodies all came together to create this instant youthful classic. The single’s B-Side also includes a haunting remix of ‘Vulture’ by the Fun Lovin’ Criminals Dub Side Project Radio Riddler, and a beautiful acoustic version of their first ever single ‘One Word’.

One Word’ in it’s original form boasts play outs on Huey Morgan’s BBC 6 Music radio show and Lauren Laverne BBC Radio 2 which in return led One Word to reach number 21 in the iTunes Reggae single charts, towards the end of 2011.

The boys have spent the last two years storming through sets on stages at high-profile festivals up and down the UK and Europe. From playing the BBC Introducing Stage at Scotland’s T in the Park to Leicester’s Summer Sundae and Strawberry Fields festivals. Culminating in a support slot for 2-tone legends The Specials on their 15 date UK arena tour playing 10,000 capacity venues back in October 2011. As well as previously supporting the likes of Dawn Penn, Maxi Priest, John Holt, Neville Staples, The Buzzcocks, The Beat and the Fun Lovin’ Criminals.
