Sharp slicing, synth sinuous pop greets our ears as we delve into an exceptional debut single from a Australian artist who goes by the name of RIVAH. She turns in an effortless performance on Untame, a dusky glistening electro R&B debut co-produced by Rip Norman (Jarryd James) and Eric J (Chet Faker, Flume). Untame blooms slowly and meticulously, sensuously and intensely. Its heat grows tenfold with every new progression. It awakens our own emotions and longings and escalates them wild and “untamed” heights. RIVAH says of her debut: “We actually wrote this song the day that Prince died – I went into the studio with my producer and we were both gutted, so we decided to pump his music at full blast and dance around the studio like crazy people.” Keep up with RIVAH, who’s inspired by the likes of SZA, Lauryn Hill, Selah Sue, and Chance the Rapper, on Facebook, here.
