It's been a minute since we have heard from River. The Southeast London-based singer, songwriter and producer first caught our attention with her rendition of Ashanti's "Foolish," and since has gone on to catch the ears of many others with more of her work.
River started her career as a featured artist on many records, including Tobtok's chart-topping "Savanna" that was released via Kitsune in 2014. But this was only her warm up, preparing to make her mark on the world as a solo artist in her own right. She's still on that path, as she's returned to Kitsune for her latest release. And it's not just any Kitsune release, but part of their Hot Stream series, sealing their support for the rising artist's talents. We are here to do the same, with a first listen of her feature on the release entitled "Midnight X."
Leading with 80's and disco-inspired production, River's vocals are alluring as they are infectious. Don't be fooled by the track's title either, and take a listen above to get the track's true meaning.
