Ever experimenting and challenging boundaries within the pop music realm, NYC indie alt.pop/dance singer Reigen follows up this year’s “Rollin'”, “Smoke Drink Party”, and his winning cover of The Cranberries’ “Dreams”, with “Ride”. It seems simple in the video – two teen guys hanging out on a quiet night after midnight when they’re out for bike rides on deserted streets for everyday escapist fun. But of course as life constantly throws complicated curves to us, friendship for one is obviously turning to more of an attraction, leading the other to ponder at the end, and you can sense the exhilaration. Reigen’s singing is bold and impressive, working with a complex and busy but uplifting arrangement that works well with the lyrics. While the song sings about a ‘ride or die’ relationship that for some of us ends up being forevermore with the best of friends, for others it takes another path. Watch the video at the link above.
