Ravive Releases New single, ‘Las Vegas Makes Me Sick’

Pop’s grunge-girl Ravive has released her new single, “Las Vegas Makes Me Sick,”. The sleek alt-fused track is more than autobiographical – it’s confessional. Ravive’s lyrics add an extra layer of maturity to her brand of grunge-y pop, and give listeners a wide landscape of synth sounds. “Las Vegas Makes Me Sick” is a testament to Ravive’s stunningly dramatic synth-laden alt experimentation – and she’s only on her fourth single. About the song, Ravive states: 

When I was just 13, I began being psychologically and emotionally abused by an older ‘man’ from Vegas. My naive 13 year old self fell in love with a sheer fantasy – one that led me to the west coast after graduation to be with a prince. But he was nowhere near royal, and instead I was taken advantage of by an online predator for 4+ years. I’d never been to Vegas until just a few years back, and when I was there, I kept looking behind my shoulder, thinking that he was lurking around, maybe following me. I couldn’t enjoy the visit without the outstanding paranoia. So “Las Vegas Makes Me Sick” confronts the fear I felt while over there, and tries to take back my power by agreeing to head onto the strip with conviction next time.
