New Music: RIVRS - Falling
After a number of failed attempts, I finally caught electronic pop group RIVRS in my home city when they supported Foxes at Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms. One of the impressions they left with me was that despite having released a number of songs (most of which have found their way onto Breaking More Waves) they still had plenty in the bag that were just as good, if not better. Today sees the release of one of those. Falling is RIVRS' most unremittingly hooky tune to date that deals with the headlong rush into the world of love (or at least lust) and the questions that go along with that commitment. Falling is fearless with its musical punch, even if lyrically it's more insecure in its nature.
Falling is taken from RIVRS forthcoming EP due on the 8th August.
