UK Artist of the Week: Rivera

Chilean born singer-songwriter Inti Rowland, aka Rivera, migrated to the UK as a small child before developing his craft in London as an emotively stylish musician—and he’s this week’s UK Artist of The Week.

Inti’s new single “We’re Alive” was inspired by the dramatic events of a car crash that left the songwriter to reflect on how reckless events can come from a single moment of naivety. The songwriter explains, “When your confidence runs away from you and you think you’re invincible, the song is about surviving what you bring upon yourself.” Having already been compared to the likes of Grizzly Bear and Elbow, Inti’s vocals compliment his musical stylings in a visceral fashion, supplying the track with a legion of beauty and compassion.

After spending to end of 2016 in South America, Inti travelled across the Atacama Desert and the landscapes became the aesthetically pleasing visuals of Rivera. Having previously released material under Inti Rowland and receiving praise from Clash and Gold Flake Paint, his new moniker, Rivera, is now ready to capture listeners with “We’re Alive.”

“We’re Alive” by Rivera is in stores now and available to stream on Spotify.
