Ride is a laid-back track that showcases the allure of Dom Whalley’s vocals more than anything. The effort refreshes new wave and pop styles – there’s a bit of Tears For Fears and Mr. Mister that can be sussed out here. Luxurious synths provide ample backing upon which Whalley’s voice can ride. The song has a bit of funkiness that rises up at points during Ride that feels more honest than a lot of the retro-inspired music that’s coming out in this modern era. It is this earnest approach that will bring fans by the barrelful to Whalley’s cause on Ride and beyond.
