Discover: Todavia ‘Stay’

Courtesy of Todavia

Rhyan Riesgo, sole member, and multi-instrumentalist of Todavia, released her melodic sophomore album, Stay.  The 5-track EP displays sweet dream-pop vibrations and intricate layers that create beautiful scenes, and in an essence, is a narrative and story album. Cleverly broken down into fragments as the album titles, that must’ve been key characteristics stuck out during moments of time, these visual components unite to build the vivid emotional tone of Stay.

Opening with “Person,” Riesgo’s emotional control is powerful as an introduction of the album. Bright, dreamy synths, are truly beautiful, and acts as the perfect support for Riesgo’s soft yet raspy vocals. Couldn’t think of a better track to set the mood for the album, and with lyrics such as “you fell in the back seat of my mind,” “Person” instantly becomes the track to chase love.

The rest of the EP possess similar qualities of whimsical, melodic structures, which enables listeners to feel the musical vibrations; a key quality with successful dream-pop music. Todavia successfully delivers through the raw, and self-expressive riffs, without losing quality in production. Despite the “dream-pop” center, Stay offers more creativity, such as the track “Sounds” and the closing track, “Baby.”

Through the stream of many similar sounds in this genre, Stay captures listeners due to Todavia’s creation. Stay is more than mechanical, but of a strong and blunt heart.

  2. My name is Shyla. And I am a professional Content writer with many years of experience in writing.

    My interest is to solve problems related to writing. And I have been doing it for many years. I have been with several groups as a volunteer and have assisted clients in many ways.
    My love for writing has no end. It is like the air we breathe, something I cherish with all my being. I am a full-time writer who started at an early age.
    I’m happy that I`ve already sold several copies of my works in different countries like England and others too numerous to mention.
    I also work in an organization that provides assistance to many students from different parts of the world. Students always come to me because I work no matter how complex their projects are. I help them to save energy, because I feel happy when people come to me for professional help.

  3. Welcome everyone ! I’m Shea Rutledge.
    Even though I jokingly credit my aunt for my writing talent, I know that it is a skill I have fostered from childhood. Though my grandmother is a writer, I also started out young.
    I’ve always had a way with words, according to my favorite educator. I was always so excited in English when we had to do a research paper .
    Now, I help current students achieve the grades that have always come easily to me. It is my way of giving back to schools because I understand the troubles they must overcome to graduate.
