Premiere: Wake Up With Richie Quake's "Swan"
If you’re in the mood for some new flavors in contemporary R&B and pop, look no further: Brooklyn-based singer, producer, and DJ Richie Quake is starting off 2017 on a high note with the premiere of his new single, “SWAN”. We can’t get enough of the up-and-comer’s subdued vocals and knack for somber trap beats, not to mention his introspective lyrics and overall swag. He notes that The Warriors, an NYC cult film, delivered inspiration for the track and its artwork.
“‘Swan’ is about betrayal,” he says. “Everyone gets crossed at some point in their life, but not everyone has the courage to deal with it and keep living. Swan from The Warriors had the courage. And so do I.”
Peep the new single below, and keep an ear out for much more on the horizon from Quake, including a remix of his track “Hesitate” by Matt FX, Yung Skrrt, and Mari, dropping on 2/1.
