Riviera F


Riviera F was formed by Russian born singer Alexa Marlen and Dutch guitarist Kairo Sin after meeting at a London art college. Sharing a love of bubblegum pop, trashy glamour and impeccable style, they decided to start their own band. They made their first recordings using a 90s Casio toy keyboard and a drum machine. As their sound developed they threw some analogue synths and 909 beats together with Kairo’s tense angular guitars, and Alexa’s icy cool vocals. Read more on Last.fm
Riviera F was formed by Russian born singer Alexa Marlen and Dutch guitarist Kairo Sin after meeting at a London art college. Sharing a love of bubblegum pop, trashy glamour and impeccable style, they decided to start their own band. They made their first recordings using a 90s Casio toy keyboard and a drum machine. As their sound developed they threw some analogue synths and 909 beats together with Kairo’s tense angular guitars, and Alexa’s icy cool vocals.

Working with synth man extraordinaire Logan Sky and current producer SirenBox, Riviera F’s sound shaped up into a combination of electro minimalism with a new wave edge and a triumphant, uplifting pop feel. Riviera F played their first ever gig on the BBC's John Peel Radio One show. They performed live after the (late) legendary DJ listened to the band's demo and phoned them the next day, telling them how much he loved their music and demanding the band to record a session for his show. Produced by Nick Rhodes, International Lover EP was Riviera F's debut, released on Pop Cult/Tape Modern, Stephen Duffy and Nick Rhodes' label, has received critical acclaim from all over Europe and the US. The excellent International Lover video, directed by LA based Matt Amato and starring Hollywood stud Billy Zane, was featured in Hollywood's Resfest film festival.

Now We've Got Europe, Riviera F's first US single is out on the Miami based electronic label, Kinetic Media. Riviera F's debut album Another City, Another Plan was released in 2010 on Germ Free Records. Read more on Last.fm.
