Feye – “River”


Düsseldorf-based pop artist Feye struts a catchy synth-driven sound on “River,” which follows two acclaimed EPs in 2023. An effervescent production complements a lushly melodic vocal presence, emitting lyrics that depict the challenges of emotional connections and personal growth — particularly when confronted with complex relationships. “River” precedes another busy year for Feye; she is working on a new EP and album for 2024.

“You’re looking for someone you can no longer find,” the vocals lament in the buzzing verses. “Can you talk to me?” a more melancholic shift enamors alongside starry-eyed synths. The metaphorical representation of struggling in the river, and eventually finding the sea, is artfully representative of personal growth and self-discovery — navigating troubled and vague waters in an eventual arrival to someone/something greater. “You only see the rain, I see a river,” Feye sings, enveloping in a radiant confidence and melodic, glowing production.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
