Rikas are going on tour again! After their critically acclaimed soul-pop album "Showtime" from 2019, two sold-out tours and festival appearances at MS Dockville, Puls Open Air or the Southside Festival, the guys have been busy again. After "Overthinking" and the "Short Stories EP", Rikas 2022 reported back with new music, which heralded the beginning of a new era for the quartet.
"Goodbye Sunshine" is the title of the latest EP. And it comes at just the right time. Because finally the spirit of this band born for the stage is activated again, finally they are allowed to bring their brilliant live show back to the stages of the world. And with this in mind, the new tracks have been created. Compared to the band's previous releases, "Goodbye Sunshine" appears in a new color palette, almost as if the band had deliberately reduced the saturation for once. You can hear a melancholy and vastness that touches in a beautiful way. It was probably their trip to Los Angeles in March 2022 that breathed new life into the band. Here they found themselves in the studio with none other than producer and musician Jonathan Rado, who has worked with artists* like Weyes Blood, The Killers, Whitney or The Lemon Twigs.
Four cosmopolitans are on their way to play every field in the world. Because before they go on a big headline tour through Europe, they will play their first gigs in the USA in March, among others at the legendary SXSW in Austin, Texas. With numerous songs on rotation throughout Europe as well as over 25 million streams on Spotify, Rikas are slowly but surely establishing themselves as one of the most sought-after music exports from Germany. Why? It's simple: Rikas' music moves you and makes you happy!This content has been machine translated.
