RIIKI metaphorically imagines seeing the “good times” as a physical person that comes to take her out of her bad place and into a better place which she feels she hasn’t see for a long time. ‘Good Times’ is a reminder to self that after any bad experience and slump in your life, good times surely must follow even when you can’t see the future becoming brighter.
“I truly believe in the quote that is ‘after any storm, there is a rainbow’, said RIIKI.
There are times when things just don’t go as you planned. But resilience and positive attitudes prevail.
Added RIIKI: “2020 started on such a high for me, and then the world came crashing down. Covid hit, my boyfriend broke up with me during the most heightened time of the pandemic, many issues in society had arisen and there was so much anger in the world. At one point I had lost so much motivation and would cry nearly everyday, but I knew I wasn’t the only one going through the feels. Writing this song has and still is helping me through the shit 2020 is thrown and myself and the world, it really feels like my moving on song onto greater and better things. I am hopeful that good changes and times are coming for everyone and myself.”
And this kind of vibe permeates what this project tries to become.
