Video: Rivals – Change Things

Change Things is the new video from American pop rock act Rivals. We featured their track Alkaline last week but their newest has a bit of a twist. It’s a team up with LA singer and producer Dutch Melrose.

When Jane reviewed Alkaline last week she praised front woman Katie Wolfe’s vocals and I definitely agree with her. Her powerful voice is the band’s most captivating feature but I also want to mention the lyrics. In the great tradition of emo, the lyrics blend catchy pop lines with macabre themes. “I’m casket-sized” is the stand out for me.

Dutch Melrose’s verse, almost mumble rap, adds an interesting contrast to Katie’s vocals and the track really has everything it needs to be a hit. Keep an eye out for Rivals in the charts. They’ll be all over them soon.

Check out the video for Change Things below. Their new LP called Sad Looks Pretty On Me is also released today.
