Michael Castro Smokiest, most alluring vocals reeled me in. Love the shoe gaze, ethereal vibe that emanates from this album. Exactly the sound that I go to when I simply want to shut my eyes and wander. Favorite track: Fallen.

about

"Todavía take you on a romantic, though potentially tragic, excursion with "Our Luck". The project of multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Rhyan Riesgo, the track provides a dark shading of heavily textured and lustruous sounds as she succumbs deeper and deeper into a toxic spell. Its' surging guitars and seraphic tones are really something for the ears to behold, considerig Riesgo came up with this all on her own." The Deli LA

"‘Our Luck’ swirls into the ether on shimmering waves of tremulous guitar and soaring ethereally tinged synth swells. Impressive sequenced percussion adds a metronomic pace to the piece as we’re introduced to the stunning vocalisations of Rhyan Riesgo, scooped up and gracefully taken on a blissful ride through layer after layer of impressive dream pop laden sound waves." Primal Music Blog

"The LA-native combines an all-around swimmy atmosphere with strong attention to detail, insisting that, “all lone sounds are purposefully placed to carry out a meaning.” Fans of Lykki Li, Imogen Heap, or Mitski would dig Todavia." Buffablog

"It's stripped of all the bullshit shrouding the emotion behind it, leaving only the raw feeling behind. The dreamy piece of blissful serenity "is about experiencing that lack of identity within a relationship." Indie Shuffle

Track Name: Say I
[fought it off, i'm still not ok] x2
go stay what did i say
rid yourself of all the ways
but we're so tired of fighting the game
we laugh, we fall the winner takes it all

[fought it off, i'm still not ok] x2

oh wait, did i take the blame
what were the words that i said?
but we're so great together fighting the game
we laugh, we fell the winner took it all

[fought it off, i'm still not ok] x2
won't you w a i t?
Track Name: Control
leave, leave all of my needs
all the things i've grieved
fill it up with me
trust, trust the ways you feel
the mirror is cursed but it's real
hide from them it's easier

[and time and time again, we'll fall down] x2

you, watch my pain write my pleasure
tell no tale it's our fault
write with my hands, your fears

[and time and time again, we'll fall down] x4
Track Name: Our Luck
don't you see i'm suffocating?
under the weight of your being
won't you stay just for the day?
won't you stay 'til I'm okay?

[but it's just our luck
just our kind of luck]

let me grieve my own identity
space for a grave pushing lilies away
I don't get how it's a fact
I don't get how to bare

[but it's just our luck
just our kind of luck
just our kind of luck
just our toxic love]

[but it's just our luck
just our kind of luck
we're better off this way
'cause it's just our luck]
Track Name: Forrest
cease my dreams
see my dreams
all I do to see,
yeah, all I do to see

[it's what I do, what I see
it's what I do to be free,
what I do to be free] x2

what I do to see
yeah, what I do to see

forrest, watching over me,
forrest, watching all my needs

[it's what I do, what I see
it's what I do to be free,
what I do to see] x2
Track Name: Fallen
who else is running?
who else is hiding?
from themselves
from themselves
i've got you on my mind
my place in time

[running, running finding a place to rest
running, running finding my name in space
falling, falling I know I did my best
falling, falling further I'm lost in space]

who else is running?
who else is hiding?
from their past
from their past
I've got me on my mind,
my peace of mind

[running, running finding a place to rest
running, running finding my name in space
falling, falling I know I did my best
falling, falling further I'm lost in space]
Track Name: Fix Myself
whisper to yourself,
I won't get it 'til I get myself
watch it grow so big
that you can't see beneath

[ i can't fix you, 'til I fix myself]

watch you fall so deep
until you can't see your feet
i'm so desperate to get a grip
truth is I don't feel it

[ i can't fix you, 'til I fix myself]
Track Name: Thursday
everything, it gets to me
everything, it gets to me
all I've ever asked of you
wasn't enough to let me through
let me through

everything, it finds a way
to dissipate, any inch of it,
all I've ever done for you
wasn't enough to let me through
let me through

won't you stay with me?
fight all the forces,
that keep you from feeling free

watch you grow with me,
time will tell us
thursdays no black sea

let go

let's go
Track Name: Espera
they say it's my fault
they say it's my call
but i disagree
yeah, i disagree

wait for the morning
wait for your turn
a promise to keep
a promise not to leave

[wait for your sound
wait for your color
wait for it too
wait for comfort]

/ say I, won't find /

I felt the fall
I felt the crawl
I say it's time
to go and find
all the things
no one can see

[wait for your sound
wait for your color
wait for it too
wait for comfort
i say it's true,
all you can be

*I say it's time
to go and find
all the things
no one can see*
