Mjön van Blommestein, bassist of the group wrote the song about the Orange River which has a double meaning about rowing and life itself. The girls when on a month long tour of the Cape and went rowing on the Orange River in Namibia.

“The song is about the hurdles which cross your life and you really a hundred present sure where your life is going. You have an idea and a vision of where you do want to go. You trust that at the end of your journey it will pay off all the hard word” said Mjön.

The music video for “River Blues” which was also produced by Mjön (Girl With Hat Productions) was released with the song. The video is clips of video and photos taken during the Orange River rowing experiences. It features the people and guides that was with them on the trip.

A catchy tune that you will listen to on any road trip. Saarkie again has shown that they are not one trick ponies and talented across the language borders. Watch the video for “River Blues” and you can purchase the song via Spotify or Apple Music
