Multi-award-winning songwriter, Lyndon Rivers, has once again teamed up with the talented, teenage Russian singing sensation, Nika Nova for the track “Gotta Feeling” which follows hot on the heels of their previous single, “UNSURE”. Nika is a model, singer and a popular video blogger in Russia, who has aspirations of becoming one of the few Russian female artists to break through the Western music market. “Gotta Feeling” is Lyndon Rivers 4th single release.
As for music styles on this track – everything is in the range of pop/dance music, but is actually quite fresh sounding even in a music market full of people who are attempting similar things. It’s more subtle and hypnotic than most mainstream music–yet much more hard-hitting and catchy than a lot of indie pop/synth groups. Once again Rivers has pulled the rabbit out of the hat, sticking to a dance formula that works well, only this time he has fused more pop into melodics!
This is pop music at its finest. The layered, melodic sound is part 80’s, part electronic, a little trippy and techno at the same time. Nika Nova’s voice-match with Rivers’ music and lyrics makes a great combination yet again.
What’s even cooler is that Nika and Lyndon let the music speak for itself, and are not shouting down people’s throats. They both seem confident enough to believe that people will embrace their music and take them to heart.
And that is exactly what will happen as Nika catches you completely off-guard and floors you with her catchy opening verse – I only heard it once on YouTube, and knew it was great – then BOOM it kicks in with the most enticing, lovely synth-based counter melody, and your jaw takes over and promptly hits the floor…then the chorus slots in, and you realize that the whole arrangement is so totally off-the-wall, together with the uplifting lyrics and driving rhythm: A great pop-dance sound that you won’t resist blasting in your car.
Lyndon Rivers and Nika Nova Marina are genius because they took the unique authenticity of their first collab single and combined it with the killer catchiness of their second, to make the “Gotta Feeling”, a seriously great pop-dance record that’s both accessible but quirky enough to stand out amongst the crowd of other artists out there right now.
