Channelling spritely indie-rock sentimentality with a tropical edge, Birmingham four-piece Riscas evoke a seamless concoction of influences infusing the wriggling rhythms of Vampire Weekend, the euphoric, festival ready choruses of The Maccabees and the anecdotal earworms of The 1975. Amassing over 6,000,000 streams and 100,000 monthly listeners on Spotify, Riscas have gone on to support the likes of Pale Waves, Sam Fender and The Night Café.
Spending 2019 locked away in the studio writing their most exciting music yet, ‘Cool To Chill With’ is the first result of this. Showcasing a maturity in both production and songwriting, ‘Cool To Chill With’ is set to lay the foundations for a huge 2020 in what is set to be a career defining year. In June 2020, Riscas signed to top independent label LAB Records. Their next single will be released in autumn this year.
