Riva Ridge – Slide

Cryptic emails are often the best ones. Riva Ridge are a new dream-pop band founded by Philadelphia-based artist Mel Riva. ‘Slide’ is their first single ever. It’s about the loss of a loved one after a tragic accident. Written and recorded over the past summer while Mel was in Tokyo, according to the author is “a song about closing a chapter in order to start another“.

Describing their own sound as “post quiet storm”, Riva Ridge have precisely caught Slide’s mellifluous pace. The dreamy vibe of the track is built over soft electro-beats and the plots woven by a shining guitar. There’s also a tinge of sadness in Mel’s voice, but it’s quite obvious given the circumstances.

That’s all. Riva Ridge’s Facebook page page is so new that counts only 4 followers right now and we aren’t able to tell you more about them (atm).
