Multi-instrumentalist Ceri Jones and producer Natascha Polke make Rive. The London-based duo (but originally from Wales and Switzerland respectively) do pretty much everything together; they write, live, and even do yoga together, which makes their band name all the stranger as it means "to split or tear apart violently." The pair came together in 2014 and joined London venue Roundhouse's highly praised roster of resident artists - quickly racking up performance slots at Glastonbury and Camp Bestival.

Their latest single 'Eyes Closed' channels much of their influences; a hint of London Grammar meets Sohn meets Disclosure for a slice of their self-described "ambient electro pop" done in a rather distinctive way. Lyrically, the track speaks of a "dichotomous bitter-sweet relationship with an addiction" while direction comes courtesy of videographer Josh Harms. 'Eyes Closed' is available now on all good digital platforms.
