Gritty Queer Electro Pop: New Visuals

Heather Rivas

The Los Angeles based queer artist is known for her witty unfiltered lyrics, candied electro pop soundscapes and intimate vocals that capture a sense of yearning.

Los Angeles born and raised Heather Rivas is known for her genre-blending music inspired by the eclectic music scene that thrives in her hometown. The queer artist is passionate about writing from her personal experiences and doesn’t hold back when it comes to the dynamics of  relationships and how often so much can be left unspoken, whether that is tied to poor judgement, mental health, or discomfort with a situation.

Her latest single «Think of Me» is about infatuation and realising you’re just into the idea of someone. Rivas confides, «A lot of us have been in a place where we realise we’re late in communicating or we just avoid it all together because it’s uncomfortable. Most of the time, infatuation is pretty unhealthy and I don’t think most of us ever want to admit out loud that we’ve been infatuated with someone».

The relatable «Think of Me» features fun, quirky instrumentation, with a confident bassline and sassy vocals. Building into a gritty chorus, bursting with energy, Rivas has something to say and you’re going to listen up. Inspired by the likes of Beabadoobee and Soccer Mommy, «Think of Me» oozes with both attitude and charisma.

Despite narrating her own life struggles, Rivas wants to allow room for interpretation with her music, hoping that listeners can connect to it no matter what they’re going through.

The songwriter shares, «I think so much of what I notice and observe in my own life is how people communicate, and specifically how we communicate through conflict. Whether it’s poor or good communication we just keep learning from each and every experience which is kind of the beauty of it all».
