M.Rider Shares New Single ‘Little Things’

Croatian electronic-pop singer and producer M.Rider shares her brand new single Little Things, the latest single to be taken from her forthcoming album, due to drop later this year. 
Exploring ambivalent, evolving feelings underlying in relationships that just aren't meant to last, Little Things features a lush four-on-the-floor house beat that is seamlessly paired with groovy rhythms, expansive synths and lush violin that together create an overall dreamy and melodic house gem. I am very fond of the smooth, ethereal-like vocals and how the song oozes feel-good vibes perfect for a fun night out or long, late night drive. 
Speaking of the new single, M.Rider said: 
It's a song about all the little things that are felt but are often ignored within a relationship. We keep these feelings, this voice of intuition, buried somewhere underneath and we keep going with the story we want to believe in... And these little things, little signs, quietly whisper the truth to us – if only we would listen. 
Accompanying the song, M.Rider shares its captivating music vide, directed by Joanna Petkiewicz, which beautifully embodies the song's warmth and dreamy vibes. Check it out below!



Joanna Petkiewicz (concept, direction, additional footage) explained the accompanying music video: 
The idea for the video came from a format of theatrical monologue (in English ‘soliloquy’, where the audience hears the actors thoughts). Visual inspirations draw upon Flemish baroque portraits that are only bust-length, and where characters stare into space or gaze mischievously or alluringly in a direct manner at a viewer, which makes it feel more like a conversation or exchange. Another big inspiration was also the flower motif, that originally also came from still-life flower paintings from the same era as the portraits. What they have in common is very often the lighting and the blurring of physical context as they often have a very dark background, which allows imagination to add a story. I was also inspired by some of Sally Potter’s Orlando headshots, that follow similar aesthetics and she translated them beautifully into a moving image.
