Row Boat is a post-rock solo project by Mark Wardale. Mark cites several Scandinavian influences behind Row Boat, including classical Nordic sounds and current musical acts such as Sigur Ros, Bjork and Surferosa. Mark describes Row Boat as, “an effort to depict the nature of Scandinavia in note form.” The result is a lush, alternative-rock, ethereal ambience created from a merging of organic strings and horns in an electronic medium.
Row Boat’s first release was the 2009 ambient E.P. “Romance.” A second E.P., “Svaret är Ja,” (The Answer is Yes) was released in 2012. 2013 witnessed the release of Row Boat’s first full length album, “E.T.T.”
