Release Date: 15th September 2017
If you’re in the market for some slick, classy and superbly crafted pop then I’d thoroughly recommend giving US singer-songwriter-producer Rider a listen. New single ‘A Little Light’ is full of Katy Perry meets Taylor Swift sized melodies that pull on the heart strings and give you something to hang on to through a difficult break up. Then there’s the supportive children’s choir repeatedly chanting “a little light” throughout the track which lifts your spirits – the kids have got your back. Rider’s voice is powerful and pure, just the way you want your pop stars and there are some nice little touches of 80s power-pop brought up to date which gives this a LadyHawke from time to time. I hear a lot of pop, particularly from female solo artists, but this definitely stands out from the pack with a glint in the eye and a knowing smile.
