Indie rock band, RIVERSEND, are back with their follow-up to “Phantom”; their original take of Pantera’s song “REVOLUTION IS MY NAME”. Olivia Horovitz (lead vocals), and Zack Miranowic (lead guitarist of Disciples of Verity and Sekond Skyn) are the duo taking a calculated risk with “REVOLUTION IS MY NAME” and breathing into it a whole new emotional spirit.
Once again, Riversend is showcasing their musical abilities in a nuance that stands guns loaded, in a scene from a moment of justice being delivered. The music entwines in the haunting apparitional motion only Olivia can convey through her vocals and Zack fulfills with his guitar work and mix.
“REVOLUTION IS MY NAME” is now available on stream, and for purchase.
Lead vocalist Olivia Horovitz reflects: “We knew it was a bold choice when we decided to cover a song by Pantera, but we did it for the fun of creating something new and different.” Guitarist/bassist Zack Miranowic added, “When I heard Olivia singing the chorus to “Revolution Is My Name” and thought, ‘Hey, that would be something really cool to record because I’ve never heard anybody do a Pantera cover in that way.’”
Based out of South Jersey, Riversend was established by girlfriend-boyfriend duo Olivia Horovitz and Zack Miranowic. The art rock/indie pair made their debut as Riversend in September of 2022 with their first single, “Dreaming”. This set the stage for their dark and melancholy tone in their subsequent releases; “Moonlight”, “Dead & Gone”, and “Phantom”.
The duet has a unique ethereal sound which displays haunting lead female vocals, rich guitar harmonies, and smooth ambient vibes. They aim to bring a moody sound to their listeners ears with ghostly lyrical themes and dramatic melodies. Their muse tends to be spirituality, with a fascination of the cryptic world that exists just beyond the veil. Riversend maintains an active social media presence. You can find them on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and more.
Zack Miranowic is also the lead guitarist for NJ-based hard rock bands Disciples of Verity (ft. Corey Glover of Living Colour) and Sekond Skyn. Olivia Horovitz is a lifelong closet singer.
