Austin Riddle brings the soul on new single ‘Rip City’

The new track is available to stream and download now

Following up a wave of fresh and impressive singles over the last few months, US singer and songwriter Austin Riddle looks to channel a more retro soul sound on his latest offering ‘Rip City’.

While clearly taking his cues from more contemporary names on the scene, there is something really nostalgic about the direction of this new release. With one foot firmly taking influence from the 80s RnB aesthetic, ‘Rip City’ is one of those familiar yet distinct cuts that breathes an effortless flow throughout.

Speaking about ‘Rip City’, he said, This song is a story about being separated over the few months of quarantine over a crooning melody that is meant to convey pain, but is infused with hope. The narrative is built around one that is yearning for the rejoining of their significant other in “RIP CITY”, a pop-culture reference to the city of Portland.”
