about

After a series of live shows supporting the likes of Blanck Mass (UK), Throwing Snow (UK) and Rone (FR) and 4 single and rework releases, Ryvage decided to start working on his first EP in summer 2018.

Armed with his portable peninsula studio - the name he gave to his itinerant studio setup during his student years in Paris - he started writing and producing new music and polishing live versions of his tracks in different places, while travelling, and whenever he had spare time. “Some of the tracks were written and produced in a train in Portugal, others in a remote cottage in France, some at a friend’s studio in the Luxembourg countryside. The EP is thought of as a musical escapade and an invitation to travel in your mind. People can hear the different moods and vibes of the locations I was at while composing the music”.

The result is a 5-track EP composed of melodic electro-pop songs, dark synth-driven electronica tracks, and ambient soundscapes. Industrial-tinged sounds and percussions are meeting 80s beats and synthwave elements while waves of powerful synth leads and atmospheric pads are battling with arpeggios and heavily processed vocals.

“It’s a personal and intuitive record. I didn’t use any conceptual filter or criteria like I used to do in other projects. It was all about finding a musical & sonic formula to explore topics like memory, mood swings, anxiety and escapism, using my computer and machines”.

The title of the EP, Tides, reflects the changing character of the music and works as an echo to the project’s name.

--------

Ryvage is the electronic solo project started in 2017 by Luxembourg based musician and producer Samuel Reinard. The name derives from the French word rivage (French pronunciation: (/riːˈvɑːʒ) meaning "shore".

Driven by his love of contrasts, produced in isolation, Reinard’s synth-driven electro-pop and its visual incarnations are a reflection of his personal obsessions, spanning from 80s sci-fi movie soundtracks and industrial electro to immersive installation art and echoes of French literature.

The name Ryvage sums it up really well: “My home base Luxembourg is landlocked. To me, making music is like driving to the sea, sitting at the shore and contemplating the horizon. It is a safe and beautiful place where you can be in the moment, let your imagination go wild or travel in your mind. I also like the idea of being on the threshold of two worlds or elements. Ryvage oscillates around contrasts, change and escapism”.

Track Name: Waves
Memory :

It comes in waves
It comes too late
It comes to stay

Because Memory’s like a snake
Slithering through our throbbing veins

A moment, a lake
Red nails, a smile
I know it was another time
Elastic mind, there’s no surprise

Hand in Hand, no words, just eyes
Track Name: Program
Ups and downs baby
It's my daily pleasure
Rollercoaster's free, you can take ride with me

Hold this vase my dear,
I can fill it up with my...
With my brand new fear

Ups and downs baby
It's my daily treasure
Rollercoaster's free, you can take ride with me

Hold this vase my dear,
I can fill it up with my...
With my brand new fear
Track Name: Siren
I love how the internet and the media and everything...

is just completely controlling what we do
Track Name: Amygdala
Every morning my heartbeat is waking me up
Every morning my heartbeat is fucking me up

Amygdala, you’re a bitch
Amygdala, you’re a bitch

Turn left, look right, is it dark or bright?
Calm down!

I wish I could find the button inside
New days rising
Putting off new scars
It runs so fast
There’s no way to make this last

Amygdala, you’re a bitch
Amygdala, you’re a bitch

Turn left, look right, is it dark or bright?
