LISTEN: Rika – “Solace”

Rika make rich, painterly indie rock, at times evoking the sweeping drama of Mineral, at other moments recalling the autumnal mood of slow-core greats Bedhead and Codeine. On “Solace”, the first single from the Austria band’s forthcoming Tired Hands 7″ (which is being co-released through Count Your Lucky Stars Records, God Damn, strictly no capital letters, and Friend of Mine), we see the band’s signature subtlety and sense of atmosphere as the song builds from hush beginnings to a richer peak, before waning back into quiet. Stream the song below and pre-order it here.
