On Rivka's Facebook they describe themselves as a Pittsburgh based duo that crafts "chill vibes and summertime highs" before they invite you to indulge. What they don't mention is the bottle of syrup (think cough, not pancake) that they hand you as you walk in to their beautiful self-titled album. Things certainly have a light and airy feeling, as female vocals drift like a dense fog across a marsh of glitching synth stabs and neck-breaking percussion. This is music for the ghosts of summer; for grasping those last weeks of late-night trips to the beach to smoke up with your friends.
