Synth-pop with a darker edge.

Rising Charli XCX-affiliated electronic-pop duo RIVRS make mesmerising synth-pop with a seductively dark edge. Their new track, 'Falling', taken from their forthcoming EP of the same name, is a great example of why they are ones-to-watch.

"Maybe I could have loved you, maybe I could still give you one more try," sings vocalist Charlotte Mallory, telling the story of an uncertain relationship; her voice matched with Fin Munro's cascading soundscape of electronic keys and synths.

Though the duo say it's "about indecision around the beginning of a relationship, the apprehension of falling in love, giving yourself emotionally to someone and how scary that is," it's a festival-ready hit that'll have you singing along word for word by the second listen. Ben Jolley
