This is a flashback in time to some retro R&B mixed with the fun electro-pop vocals of today.
Karen Hardy creates a total dreamscape-style track that brings you the feeling of an 80's teen movie. I love the richness of her voice and her ability to create depth. The song is a pure cute teen romance and puppy love. It creates an air of nostalgia that is fun and retro but also remakes that 80's R&B pop sound shift more modern.
"I got the idea for Ride after realizing that I had gone through my teen years without having done anything that a typical teen probably did. I never went to my prom, never had a high school boyfriend, and never even had a proper graduation. Now being in my early twenties, I feel like I only have a little while longer to get it out of my system. Following the songs release, I'll be putting out a music video which was inspired by some classic 80's teen movies." - Hardy
