“The Lyric video for ‘There For You’ was inspired by the art of James R. Eads. He uses these huge cosmic metaphors to explore the idea of basic human connection,” Fettes says. “I wanted to try and explore those same ideas but through a kind of 1980’s sci-fi aesthetic.”

“There For You is about how thinking of the people we love can bring them to us any time we need them. It doesn’t have to be spiritual or metaphysical it’s just the power of our memories,” says Fettes. “When you can’t be with them physically, they can still be there for you across time and space. It sounds cosmic but it’s really kind of simple and comforting.”

“[There For You] focuses on a core pain in life, that even with those to whom we’re closest we won’t always be together physically or philosophically. The words might ring sad, but the song holds its own promise, circling back to a thematic, foundational notion of hope that weaves its way throughout the music”Luke Hanson, Indie Band Guru

About Riotron: Inspired by classic pop artists like Phil Collins and Madonna, Fettes started writing his own music as a teenager. While attending university, he learned recording while working at a local studio, writing and producing songs for other artists. A successful career as an inventor and entrepreneur took him away from music until last year when he wrote “I’m Sorry” to express his frustration about current politics. The songs kept coming and shortly after he formed Riotron as the outlet for his new music.

About the Dark Highway EP: Riotron’s upcoming 2020 LP, Dark Highway, is reminiscent of an 80’s movie soundtrack, with a collection of highly personal anthems, evoking styles like dance-rock, electronic synth-pop, and even jazz. Thematically, it’s about how our darkest moments eventually lead to hope. Riotron’s Dark Highway sends its listener on a metaphorical drive through hell that eventually leads to love, acceptance, and self-forgiveness.
