RIVER is a German-based, California-born, road tripping duo whose debut single, “Inappropriate,” caught our ears with it’s unique brand of dark indie-pop. About the song, the duo says:

This song is like traveling back in time to when we were still kids living each day to the fullest, not a care in the world. Not taking life and ourselves too seriously can be a lot harder than expected but with just the right bit of distance it’s a lot less drama than you think.

Beyond the nostalgic approach and lyrics about high school and ice cream (take us back!), we appreciated the bouncy basslines and unique synth textures throughout “Inappropriate.” If you like it too, you can check it out via Spotify.
