Rival just released his latest track, “Walls”, featuring vocals from Bryan Finlay. The German producer has been keeping it really busy this year, having already released four originals, among them the electronic ballad “Lately” featuring Conor Byrne and bass-heavy “Satisfy The Rage” with pop/rock singer Micah Martin

“Walls” comes out as part of No Copyright Sounds' (NCS) huge Elevate compilation, featured alongside artists such as Diamond Eyes, Jim YosefSara Skinner, Diviners and more. With the collection of tracks, NCS aims to showcase that "Electronic music isn't just about the drop, every song is a story in its own right." 

On "Walls", Rival stays true to the statement. Starting the production off with orchestral strings and epic drums, he lays down the path for Bryan Finlay to shine perfectly. The drop comes in a rather unexpected manner. Featuring distorted vocal chops, synths and simple yet effective drums, it completes the sonic identity of "Walls" - an ambitious and impactful release.
