Jerrica Alyssa’s new single, “Ride,” is an infectiously melodic track wrapped in blissed out attraction and unduly anticipation. The musician, who studied at ARCT, Royal Conservatory of Music, has spent years pouring her soul into music through experimentation and songwriting. After moving to Nashville from Vancouver, she began touring the world in places like China, Japan, and Polynesia, as well as appearing in television shows including Canadian Idol and Variety’s Got Talent. But it was in the creation of her own sound that she discovered her voice — a voluptuous mix of pop, funk, and R&B that vibrates with sensual prowess and self-discovery.
“Ride,” is inspired by the intense anticipation of exploring the undiscovered, whether it’s a new person that sets you on fire or the dizzying furor of embarking on an unforgettable adventure. The funkadelic bassline is a retro throwback to 1980’s Prince, all earnest sexuality and vibing soul that keeps thumping right into the chorus. The layers of breathy vocals undulate effortlessly across the sparse instrumentation, bringing listeners into a psychedelic-meets-pop vibe with the simple twist of a melody. “Ride” is a golden sonic experience dripping in a glitzy pop-funk arrangement that demands a repeat listen.
