London rising star George Riley bring us a new powerful single ‘TRIXXX‘ featured along with official video
The rising star has joined with regular collaborator Oliver Palfreyman for ‘TRIXXX’ – a song that maximizes its diverse influences to take her sound to uncharted territories. Starting with a disorientating soundscape, ‘TRIXXX’ bubbles and whirrs with a sparse groove.
Heavily saturated bass notes cascade against shards of opposing synth textures, with Riley’s fragile yet powerful jazz inflected delivery providing the thread to tie the fractured elements together. A bracingly self-assured showing, the track spotlights George Riley’s ease with taking the road less travelled; eschewing genre convention to provide a sound that’s uncompromising in tone yet devastatingly immediate.
The new single ‘TRIXXX’ deals with falling through the traps of the online representations of others and toxic self-comparison. Through this concept the track also explores the idealisation of eurocentricity and popularity’s role in society’s collective self-absorption.
Throughout ‘TRIXXX’, Riley examines the fact that via the constant chasing of clout and society’s cosmetic preference towards whiteness, Black womxn are consistently chasing a demon that takes from their culture while criticising the people behind it.
A unique statement that shows George Riley’s intent to fuse and twist a multitude of sounds at will, ‘TRIXXX’ is the perfect encapsulation of Riley as an artist; dynamic, assertive and highly inventive.
Only three songs into her career, ‘TRIXXX’ provides an enticing insight into the future of George Riley – one of 2021’s most exciting emerging prospects whose immense aspirations are only matched by her cosmic inspirations.
