Shut Up and Ride is a rollicking, guitar driven ode to spontaneity and risk-taking, with an unmistakably lustful lyric, reflecting the character of Krista Polvere, a true Gemini, having two very different sides to her personality.

The single is accompanied by a music video shot in which the artist plays two roles – a free-spirited, independent woman travelling the dusty backroads of Australia and a mysterious, ghostly seductress inhabiting the Virginian woods.


In a dusty room
Back of a bar
Met me a sailor
Big strong arms
And a wooden leg
Oh he had me pegged

Picked me up
Lights went down
His honey rose
Was outta town
Only one quick stop
Till I get what you got

Ahh I got nothing to hide
Ahhh Gonna shut up and ride
Shut up and ride

Hooked me in
With golden teeth
A tattooed tear
Falling down his cheek
Didn’t catch his name
Gonna burn this flame

Two quick steps I was in his truck
You believe in fate I believe in luck
It was all it took
And the truck bed shook

I got a bag of tricks
Rattle up his bones
He thought his skin was think
This heart was built to roam
This heart was built to roam
