Philly’s Riva Ridge charms us with her bittersweet new single “Slide”
Philly newcomer Riva Ridge recently put out her dazzling debut single “Slide.” With 80’s-esque back beats, twinkling guitars and soaring synths, Mel Riva, the woman behind it all, creates an ambiance all her own. The song has a sweet and charming electronic pop sound, but comes from a bittersweet place. In an email, Riva told us:
‘Slide’ was written after the loss of a loved one after a tragic accident. Written and recorded over the past summer while in Tokyo, the song is about closing a chapter in order to start another.
You can download the song via her Soundcloud page and watch the the video for “Slide” below.
