A look into Le Riche’s latest single, “River Runs”
We are getting a little tired of the hurricanes, the mass flooding, and the devastation. Right now a Category 4 hurricane rips through Puerto Rico, resurfacing emotions and anxiety amongst the island’s residents that forces the world to watch and interpret scenarios with their personal perspective or experience. Le Riche’s timeliness for “River Run,” his new single, may be unintentional to our stream of ocean-bred disasters, but it plays through to the multi-faceted perspectives that was conceptualized from the making of this song.
“During the writing process, I know we each had a different perspective for the direction the song was taking. For me this allows the song to wear “different hats”. It’s funny how you can write, or hear a song, and it can take on different meanings for you over time.”
Le Riche – River Runs
For some, the song could be thematic to mother nature. For others, waves of emotion re-surface from the past. This is what Le Riche saw in his song.
“When you least expect to run into someone and then you realize the feelings or emotions you once shared have suddenly resurfaced. Be it an old friend, lover from a past life, or a familiar looking stranger, when your eyes meet again you are overcome with nostalgia and the memories playback like a movie in your head.”
This may be Le Riche’s best song yet. “And the river runs deep.” The chorus carries weight from this line. Be it emotional or from a causality, his words ring in true pop fashion. There is a bounce in the rhythm that makes this song more melancholy in flavor. And that alone adheres to Le Riche’s songwriting theory. The past returns to reinforce your understanding of this particular aspect of life. Le Riche just opens to the door to building awareness from within and sounding bigger than he has ever sounded. There are so many quaint little touches to this song that we get a nicely controlled song. What we have in Le Riche’s exploration is not just excellent songwriting, but a catchy-as-hell composition that allows you to lose yourself in the beauty of pop perfection.
