Acclaimed singer-songwriter-bassist Karina Rykman has shared ‘Joyride,’ the first single and title track from her debut album arriving via AWAL on Friday, August 18.
Equal parts thick bass, ethereal synths, disco-funk guitar, and silky, inviting vocals, ‘Joyride’ – which features signature lead guitar from JOYRIDE co-producer Trey Anastasio – captures Rykman’s jubilant brand of sonic exploration, bridging an array of genres to arrive at her own compelling and original take on psychedelic indie rock.
“’Joyride’ is about being driven insane as you’re kept awake by music in your head all night – so much so that eventually, you give up and ask your partner to take you on a joyride instead of tossing and turning,” says Rykman. “This is doubly humorous because I’m an unlicensed born and raised Manhattanite, and as a result, must be driven everywhere!”
