Rivages: Unleashing “Happy To Be So” from the Depths of Grunge!

Prepare to immerse yourself in the visceral soundscape of Rivages, the audacious Rock/Grunge/Metal/Progressive trio hailing from Brussels, Belgium. With their roots firmly planted in the rich soil of alternative music, Rivages has steadily grown into a formidable force since their inception in 2018. Their latest single, “Happy To Be So,” is a testament to their relentless evolution and creative prowess, promising to capture the hearts of grunge aficionados and rock enthusiasts alike.

Rivages’ musical journey began with their debut EP, “Under Fire,” recorded with the adept hands of Mathias Duquennoy (JeonWi) and Cyril Crozier of Cantera Recordings on January 30, 2021. This initial offering showcased their raw talent and set the stage for their subsequent self-produced album, “You,” released on March 15, 2022. Recorded live on September 17, 2021, this album solidified their presence in the music scene, marking them as a band to watch.

Their meteoric rise continued as they became semifinalists in one of Italy’s most prestigious festivals at the iconic Ariston Theater in Sanremo, a landmark in the Liguria region. This milestone not only underscored their growing reputation but also highlighted their ability to resonate with audiences beyond their home turf.

On August 15, 2023, Rivages unleashed “Music Is Sexual,” an album that defies genre conventions by seamlessly blending jazz and heavy metal influences into their signature grunge sound. The title track, inspired by the rebellious spirit of the Sex Pistols, and the transformative “If You Want To Kill Me,” which pushed the band towards a darker punk aesthetic, were pivotal in shaping the album’s unique identity. This bold experimentation cemented their reputation as innovators within the rock landscape, drawing parallels with the legendary acts of the ’90s while carving out their own distinct niche.

Their third album, “Mug’s Game,” heralds yet another chapter in Rivages’ dynamic discography. Leading the charge is the single “Happy To Be So,” a hard-hitting track currently on heavy rotation on Tunedloud Hit Radio. The song is a sonic homage to the iconic sounds of Nirvana and Alice in Chains, invoking the gritty essence of the Seattle music movement that once dominated the airwaves. With its powerful riffs, evocative lyrics, and undeniable energy, “Happy To Be So” is poised to become a fan favorite, capturing the raw, unfiltered emotion that defines Rivages.

At the core of Rivages are three exceptional musicians whose synergy and passion fuel the band’s creative engine. Frédéric Joachim, the maestro of rhythm and lead guitar, brings a melodic sensibility to their compositions while lending his voice to the evocative lyrics. Bassist Elio Anzivino adds depth and complexity to their soundscapes, infusing each track with his intricate basslines. Drummer Xavier Delville anchors the trio with his dynamic drumming, driving the band’s powerful rhythms and explosive energy.

As Rivages continues to blaze a trail through the rock and grunge genres, “Happy To Be So” stands as a beacon of their artistic evolution and unyielding dedication to their craft. With each release, they push the boundaries of their sound, exploring new musical territories while staying true to the raw, emotional core that defines their music.

For fans yearning for the resurgence of grunge and the thrill of innovative rock, Rivages offers a captivating sonic experience that is both nostalgic and refreshingly original. “Happy To Be So” is more than just a single; it is a declaration of the band’s intent to leave an indelible mark on the music world. Stay tuned, as Rivages is undoubtedly a band on the rise, ready to redefine the contours of modern rock with their relentless creativity and unbridled passion.
