Sam, Sascha, Chris and Ferdi are Stuttgart natives who make music together as Rikas. The German band is currently gearing up to release an new EP titled Short Stories on September 10th. And now, they have just unveiled a new disco-tinged, indie pop tune, “Superstitious”, and alongside it, a fascinating music video directed by repeat-collaborator Aladin Mekanovic.
“Superstitious” was written together with their friend and producer Dennis Neuer in Berlin. The song delves into that feeling of always getting reminded of a person but in a very irrational and obsessive way.
About the video, Rikas say: “It was lockdown and so we asked our friends and family if they wanted to be part of the video. Everybody was up for it because no one was playing shows at the moment. We have many special guest appearances in the video. From magicians to comedians to jugglers and one of our favorite bands Blond.“
