Houston artist Riven is quickly coming up.
On a recent trek through SoundCloud, I was lucky enough to stumble across Riven who is taking the traditional tropes of the underground style and putting his own unique and psychedelic influence upon the sound. The instrumental features crashing percussion that is juxtaposed by a flute melody that further muddies the waters sonically. Riven’s vocals are heavily autotuned but this takes nothing away from his performance, which is quite rare. I love this song and can’t wait to see what else Riven can do.
