River of Souls is the third full-length album of from Tim Cohen and his band, Magic Trick. Recorded at the Tree House, Cohen’s attic studio, the album thematically explores change, insecurity, escapism, optimism, vanity, cynicism, love and change amidst the emotional flotsam and jetsam of modern life. In some way, Cohen’s material reminds the listener that although things can probably be better, life itself for all of it’s complications can still be profoundly beautiful.
“Come inside” is the album opening track off River of Souls and the first single from the album and it’s a gorgeously moody track that reminds me a bit of Flowers–era Echo and the Bunnymen. In fact, Cohen’s smoky, dusky baritone reminds me a little bit of late period Ian McCullough.
