wired 29/07/2020

RIIKI's music video for her single High Heights is one of the best music videos of 2020. There's no lack of colours in the video, and RIIKI's personality finds a way to shine through.

Watch it above, and get to know RIKKI a bit better below.

Where do you call home?
NZ is home, wherever my family is will always be the best kinda home :-)

What inspired your song 'High Heights'?
Really hilarious and weird - I was at the beach eating fish and chips with my boyfriend at the time, throwing chippies at the seagulls. This one seagull got pretty rampaged by all the other seagulls that swarmed in and I couldn't help but feel so sorry for the little guy. I joked about writing a song about the seagull and then somehow that led onto writing about not letting others belittle you. Stand up for yourself (like the little seagull).

What's your proudest musical moment?
I felt really proud to be the cover of one of my favourite global spotify playlists called 'Pop 'n' Fresh'. Also to perform in LA before the craziness at the end of Feb this year. 

What's a Kiwi song you're loving at the moment?
'Talk To Me' by Lilly Carron 

What's one artist you would love to collaborate with?
I would love to collab with so many artists oh my goodness. Currently, 'The Japanese House'.
