RY X AU
When a nifty jack-of-all-trades drags his machines out of his deep house to plug them into his heart, a languid folk adventure begins. Take your time.
Continuously on the line between classy electronic music and blissful folk, the Australian surfer sings about joy and melancholy with extreme subtlety. Mystifying and multi-faceted, the shrill-voiced prodigy deliberately plays hide-and-seek with success. One foot in the project Howling, another in The Acid, it is nevertheless under his own moniker that he flirts with grace in this ocean of languor. As sweaty as a clubber’s skin at dawn, RY X’s connected folk was the missing wave to surf smoothly between Bon Iver and Jeff Buckley.
