“Ritual” is the sort of track that creeps up on you. Quietly catchy with a persistent guitar riff and an ethereal flute sounding in the background, the first half of the track features calming vocals reminiscent of Bon Iver. However, the last minute and thirty seconds of the track shifts gears, building into a climactic surge of synthesized vocals. “Ritual” has the sensibility of a song one would listen to while walking in late fall, the track is full of movement and in betweenness, not quite one thing or another.
The band has recently moved to Manchester, England, to record their first album. However, if you need something to tide you over while you wait, “Ritual” is available as a free download on Soundcloud.
