New EP: Fil Bo Riva – If You’re Right, It’s Alright (2016/09/23) // New Track ‘Killer Queen’

:: Killer!!! What a voice, this is too good.


FIL BO RIVA. Three words, three cities. Rome, Dublin and Berlin. The 24 year old half-Italian grew up in the roman suburbs and spent his youth in Ireland. His first song was an homage to Pete Doherty and he decamped to Berlin in 2012 after his first visit to the city.

FIL BO RIVA is a tube-amp-driven-like-something voice of a young fellow, that will haunt you. After dropping out of college in winter 2014, Fil spent his days focusing on his music and busking played an important role in the development of his art. During this time of musical overdose he got to know guitarist Felix A. Remm and producer Robert Stephenson, two figures who would play an important role in his continuing development and would see to it that Fil Bo Riva made the leap from solo project to a collaboration of like-minded souls.  Felix took the decidedly raw material and broadened its sonic scope whilst Robert Stephenson dragged Fil straight from the street into his studio to record the songs you can now enjoy on the EP.

These rugged, powerful songs have lost none of their urgency but have gained many exciting touches, secreted in the arrangements. Floating between folk and soul, Fil Bo Riva merges beating melancholic songs with great dynamics. The result of a twisted mind and a beating loving heart. [Press release]
