Following on from the success of her debut EP “The Experiment” Rikki S has released her latest single “Memories”. She may have experimented with her sound with her first release, yet it’s safe to say with her latest single the genre-mashing guitar hero definitely found it.
The instrumental-only track stands as a testament to her jaw-dropping, momentous command of the fretboard, and her soaring riffs follow on from intricate progressions to leave you mesmerised in her progressive ability. In the space of four minutes, you’re taken on an emotional roller coaster courtesy of an electric guitar and I can’t say it’s ever happened to me before. Sure, there are plenty of guitarists out there with the ability to bust out monstrous riffs, but what Rikki treats you to with her irrefutable talent is delicate and cinematically orchestral. She may have just replaced Marissa Paternoster (Screaming Females) as my favourite female guitarist.
