El Rio presents Chives Viria along with Edgar! and Ryan Von Gonten.Chives Viria is a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter based in Oakland CA. With a keen development across instruments and vocals, he’s paved a way for a distinctive sound oozing in reverb and delay. Influences of his are bands such as Tame Impala, Majical Cloudz and Deerhunter among others. Currently preparing the release of his debut EP, Chives Viria is bound to make an impact.https://chivesviria.comRyan Von GontenPerhaps the most interesting work is that which can’t be easily categorized; which seems to drift in on its own breeze, distinct and compelling. Ryan Von Gonten’s new album is certainly one such thing, calmly moving between genres and influences with such ease and consideration you barely even notice the change. Featuring eight wonderfully-detailed songs, Truthlikeness is a remarkably assured debut, equally comparable to the likes of Beach House and Youth Lagoon as it is Neil Young and Cocteau Twins.http://ryanvongonten.comEdgar!“Edgar!” represents the musical vision of bay area musician Michael Edgar. It’s taken from his last name but includes an exclamation point in the title to suggest excitement and/or panic. With reverb-heavy guitars, hazy synths, and a crooning voice, Edgar! Crafts songs that dramatically reveal what it’s like to be a 20-something afraid of failure in a big city. He recently released his newest project, “Looking Forward to Brighter Days”, a 16-track album that broadens his dream pop sound to new territories.
