If you’re a fan of The 1975 and can’t wait for their new drop this Friday then it’s about time you hopped onto RILEY who’s latest drop was designed to be belted out at the top of your lungs in a convertible as you drive down the coast. Close your eyes and you’re transported away to a tropical paradise with a group of your closest friends, living a rebellious fever dream where you run out into the unknown without a care in the world and live out your coming of age movie fantasies. RUNNIN features nostalgia ladened synths that glisten like the ocean as the sun’s rays dance across it and a rhythmic percussion that gets my head bopping in a matter of seconds, as well as cheshire cat like smile appearing on my face. Like an internationally acclaimed acrobat RILEY is able to flip his vocal between the solemn nature of the verses and the jubilation of the chorus with such fine precision that you can’t help but sing-a-long. All of these elements alchemise together to form a fully fledged summer anthem that will soundtrack many a memory during this summer season.
If you want more of this then dive into RILEY’s discography as it’s packed with jams that have ridiculous replay value. From Los Angeles with love, RILEY’s got a track for every occasion.
