‘Ride’ is a high-octane cut from the London indie collective. The song’s kaleidoscopic psychedelic flourishes are paired with propulsive riffs in the explosive chorus, which results in a sound playing like a combination of Foals, Temples and Tame Impala.
Regarding the new single frontman Oscar Gormley says, “‘Ride’ is probably our most energetic and riff driven song to date. We’d been writing a lot of mid-tempo dance music and started to really miss this kind of incessant heavier side to our sound. Lyrically the song is about feeling totally out of control. It’s about that space after a period of mental instability where you don’t know where your mind is going to take you next."
Having only emerged in the tail end of last year, SUN SILVA have been quick to make a name for themselves as one of the most exciting new bands.
