Richie Gathu Shares New Single ‘Cosa Nostra’

Kenya-born, Bristol-based singer, songwriter and producer Richie Gathu has just shared his brand new single Cosa Nostra, out now via Night Runners. I am loving this captivating blend of rap, pop, latin and indie music that sounds perfect for the summer. I am very fond of his vocals and how smooth yet confident his delivery is. Loving the way his vocals flow over the chill production packed with gorgeous guitar melodies that ooze latin, summer vibes. Written and produced by Richie himself, Cosa Nostra is a vibrant and energetic track that comes just in time for the warmer, summer months. The song's overall chill, feel-good atmosphere won me over from the start and I think you will love it too. Check it out below!



Speaking about the song, Richie Gathu said,

As soon as I press play on Cosa Nostra, I'm teleported to Havana, Cuba or to the Amalfi Coast. In my mind, I see a beautiful sunset on the horizon, my body fuelled by 15 (or more) tequila shots as I hit the salsa across a pebbled street toward my lover who is in the exact same vibe as I am. The inspiration for the song stems from lockdown, the endless months of being separated from a lover and planning to "pull up" as soon as I could. I even had to sprinkle some Swahili in there to add extra flavour to the tune!
