American pop newcomer Ravive has released her debut single ‘Sahara.’ A ghostly pop fusion, the track was written by Ravive and produced by Okan Kazdal. With her hypnotic vocals, Ravive captures the feeling of being stranded in an unfamiliar place on ‘Sahara’.
The carefully crafted track paints the visual of walking through the desert to try and reach a place of safety. ‘Sahara’ establishes the haunting pulse of of what’s to come for this immersive artist. “‘Sahara’ was an experience,” Ravive says of the track, “I wanted to really paint the visual of trudging through the desert, feeling exhausted, but still trying to make it home. Pop music has always been a euphoric, but sometimes heartbreaking sonic trip for me, so I wanted to create a song that could be that experience for someone else. “Sahara” captures an odd juxtaposition between mental exhaustion and finding sanctuary. Exploring those opposites melded into a synth fusion that I instantly fell for.”
‘Sahara’ marks the debut of Ravive. An ethereal fusion of breathy pop, cinematics, and synthesized melancholia, Ravive is writing her own story of revitalization. After spending years in the rock industry and touring nationally with an alternative duo, the 27 year old is embracing evolution, simplicity, eeriness, and reflection. Her experimental sonic blend is simply an audible painting showing where she’s been. A phantom for your ears, Ravive toys with her inner darkness to create a ghostly, hypnotic pop sound.
‘Sahara’ is available on all platforms now.
