Ritzz devliers shimmering electro-pop glory on Nice (feat. Townes)

Entering the music of Ritzz is like entering some sprawling, vibrant sonic universe. The Sydney-based producer crafts music that stretches out for planes before you. It’s vibrant and infectious but also rooted in an emotional, cathartic resonance.

With the release of his latest single Nice (feat. Townes), the artist has immediately established his penchant for crafting deeply addictive electro-pop gems. Here’s a hot tip from the Happy Mag team: keep an eye on this name, we’re expecting big things.

On his new single Nice (feat. Townes), Sydney-based producer Ritzz crafts a dynamic and buoyant slice of electro-pop brilliance.

Throughout the new single, Ritzz blends elements of electronica and pop to deliver something uniquely his own. With dynamic production and spirited vocal hooks, Nice feels simultaneously familiar and fresh—it possesses all the characteristics of a pop favourite, while navigating new and exciting sonic territories.

Across its punchy sub-three-minute run-time, the track pulls in myriad directions—it never sits in one place for too long. This, however, is its most endearing quality. One moment you’ll be floating through Townes’ flawless, dreamy vocals, and the next your body will be forced into movement by uplifting electronic melodies.

“Nice is about those relationships where you are completely infatuated with someone for a short period of time and you know it’s not going to last but you just want it to feel like love,” Ritzz says of the track.

These themes are captured with captivating musical charm. By the time the track reaches its conclusion, we guarantee you’ll be spell-bound by Ritzz’ unique blend of electro-pop sounds.

These are still relatively early days for this Sydney artist, but judging by the quality of everything we’ve heard so far, I think we can safely expect plenty more great tunes.
