As far as steady grooves go, RIVVRS‘ latest jam “Don’t Wanna Know” has us covered. Like any heavy tune worth worthy of its own playlist spot, this one completes an underlying circuit in the pop mechanism with a smooth progression that takes no breaks and knows just when to peak. The LA-based artist wants to leave certain things to mystery when it comes to those awkward relationship breaks. While vocals almost resemble a subdued Anderson .Paak – with an accent – what we hear layered beneath is a southern funk to round out a gritty feel.
This one is cut from RIVVRS’ latest full-length, Cosmic Dream, later this year. Listen below and keep an eye out for RIVVRS at BottleRock Napa Valley this year along with his teaser set at one of LA’s favorite venues, Resident, March 20th.
