WATERS (Van Pierszalowski, Ex-Port O’Brien) – “For The One”

WATERS by Amber Chavez

Bay Area band Port O’Brien was a highly autobiographical, nautically inclined project (sample song titles: “Fisherman’s Son,” “Stuck On A Boat“) featuring a fisherman and his girlfriend at its core, swelling to a quintet in its prime. After three albums and various EPs, Port O’Brien is no more. After some time travel/living in various locations (Alaska, Oslo, San Fran, New York), the band’s lead singer/songwriter Van Pierszalowski returns with a new project called WATERS and the single “For The One” in advance of a new solo LP Out In The Light. He recorded it with a band “he found in Oslo,” but we’re told WATERS is entirely Van’s outlet. The name is revealing — still nautical, now stripped to its core element — and the material retains Van’s knack for scruffy and rambunctious, catchy melodies, but here with a high-gain college radio guitar and just one loud, rousing voice.
