RIVRS - New Waves
RIVRS are the latest bad spelling, search engine optimised, London based electronic trio to crop up on the Breaking More Waves radar, and we’re rather glad they did. Charlotte, Fin and Fred are purveyors of slick sophisticated sultry modern pop, and have managed to cross our path three times now, through their cover of En Vogue’s Don’t Let Go, (under an earlier name) their rather compelling and danceable song Close To You and now with Last Love, a track on the latest Kitsuné New Faces compilation. The eagle eyed among you might also recognise one member of RIVRS, Fred McLaren, as the drummer was previously a member of the band Post War Years. RIVRS music is the equivalent of champagne - classy and highly enjoyable. Take a listen below and let them hit your taste buds.
