Melbourne based singer-songwriter Kevin Riady will release New Single
This July 2nd, Kevin Riady is set to drop his brand new single 'Marco' complete with a music video on the 9th. The Melbourne-based artist is just getting started within the music scene, though he has already enjoyed some early successes. Let's take a sneak listen to this new track...
Kevin Riady released his first few singles in 2021 and followed by multiple solo/band gigs. With more than 20k streams on Spotify, Kevin has been featured in some indie and Spotify editorial playlists. His music is very heartfelt and narrative-driven, based on his diverse experience in life. This new track 'Marco' is told from the heart, and from a real place of honesty. Kevin wanted to make a more happy song, contrasting with his usual leanings towards sad songs. However, there is still a melancholic hint to this; as the singer longs for the object of their desire (the friend) to feel the same. This song is about when a friendship gets close and there's a little confusion over what this relationship now means for each person involved. There is a hint of James Bay in this, with it's catchy vocal melodies and sweet guitar. One also thinks to James Blunt and Ed Sheeran. There's also a lovely use of backing vocals to add warmth and richness. All in all, well worth your listen.
'Marco' is out on all major platforms for stream and download on July 2nd. And the video on July 9th!
