New band ‘Ritual’ formed of folk musician come hip hop producer and multi-instrumentalist

Alternative, Electronica

Ritual

London based, new band Ritual is a collaboration between an Irish born folk singer/songwriter, an underground hip hop producer (who’s worked with the likes of Talib Kweli) and a multi-instrumentalist
who’s given his hand to dozens of the UK’s most talented singers.

Since the start of 2014, Ritual have been building a buzz in the UK music industry for
understated but powerful songwriting and production, now with the release of their first taster track‘The Fall’, the introduction to their journey and their own sound has arrived.

‘The Fall’ is as emotive as it is beautiful. A burning ballad of relationships, ‘The Fall’ draws on subtle elements of rural folk, r’n’b and a thumping drum that resonates to the very core, marrying the sounds in a messy bow of inner-city darkness.

As a reoccurring, conceptual feature on the album – the band use dual vocals with female singers throughout, expect some exciting recordings in the coming months to be unveiled with songs featuring
artists such as Charlotte OC, Delilah and Damien Rice’s long term collaborator Lisa Hannigan.
