Sold Down the River is a very impressive song, especially considering the young age of the musician behind it. The track sounds to us as if the psychedelic acts of the 60s and the 70s combined with modern folk artists like Johnny Flynn, and it will be very interesting to see how Gisborne’s music progresses with time.
