On their heart-wrenchingly sincere album ‘The Long Way Down’, German alternative rockers Riches Of The Poor show a mastery of melody, texture, and melancholy. With atmospheric guitars floating merging with aggressive rock beats, they write cathartic songs that speak directly to the lovesick heart.
For fans of The Cure, The National, and other indie heroes known for turning misery into hook-heavy anthems, Riches Of The Poor will be a diamond in the rough. Romantic, angsty, and full of life-affirming moments, ‘The Long Way Down’ shows a confident band at the peak of their powers.

“This German band is downright fearless.” (Indie Shark – Pick of the Week)
“Highly recommended to indie rockers everywhere.” (Indie Rock Guru)
