I Don’t Wish You The Best follows on from the duo’s previous three singles, which all narrate different stages of a relationship breaking down. The final chapter of the story, RIVES’ latest offering is indicative of their potential to thrive on the alt-pop scene.
Discussing their new release, RIVES says: “A catchy but bittersweet combination of pop meets dreamscape rock that talks of making the tough decision to move on from a relationship. This is a personal track for us and one that defines the project as a whole.”
Fusing together electro-pop, indie-rock and R&B influences, Cheltenham-based duo RIVES have returned with their emotive new single I Don’t Wish You The Best. Guided by moody guitar lines and driving beats, the production provides a dark and dynamic accompaniment for passionate vocals. The lyrics are unreservedly honest, telling the heartbreaking tale of life after a breakup with the storytelling style that RIVES are becoming known for.
