London producer/multi-instrumentalist Halina Rice creates sonic soundscapes informed by bass, glitch, ambient, and experimental. After releasing her first EP in 2015, Rice is preparing to release her full-length debut, Redux, on October 20 via Blurred Recordings.
We’re pleased to world premiere “Drive” from the album. It’s a melodic pop-infused affair melding a chugging synth-driven groove, cool bass and ebullient vocals.
Rice says of the track, “I think, particularly with song lyrics, it’s about trying to capture fleeting moments and feelings that are hard to put into words and the result is like a tableaux of different moments or a series of photographs – maybe like the musical equivalent of memes with characters frozen in a moment. ‘Drive’ is about two people clinging together trying to drink and laugh their way out of a life they are trapped in – you say you are going to leave but you know you never will.”
