Rising New Zealand indie-pop artist RIIKI brings the goods with her new single, ‘High Heights’ on Locals Only this week.
A head-bopping soak-up-the-sun pop tune, ‘High Heights’matchesthe sweetness of RIIKI’s vocals with a catchy summertime vibe.
RIIKI says about High Heights “There's a quirky and very light-hearted mood to the song, it's about an odd and funny story to do with a seagull which was getting bullied by other seagulls because I fed it a chip... I’ve never gained inspiration from something as weird as observing seagulls before, but I was inspired to write a track about being belittled by someone but proving you are a bigger person than them.
I guess I used the scenario as a good metaphor, and you wouldn’t have had a clue unless I told the story”
