Mating Ritual – Drunk

Mating Ritual

The 90’s was a messy time, and Mating Ritual are channelling such vibes with their new track ‘Drunk’, which lasts a sturdy six minutes 21 seconds. But this track is more about lovemaking than drinking, as the Los Angeles-based band contemplates the dissolution of a relationship following the honeymoon period.

The album, ‘How You Gonna Stop It?’ will be out on 9 June via Smooth Jaws.

Sounds like: M83, The Cranberries, Sir Sly, Huntar, Pacific Air, Ten Fé, Blossoms

We are excited to have some Australian music back on our radar. Cue Brisbane-based, and classically trained, former gospel band member, Solomon O.

He has teamed up with friend / session drummer, Brandon Gillies, on his latest track, ‘Holograms’; a vibrant indie number with delicate synth notes and three dimensional drums.

Wild Front – Views

Wild Front

Mating Ritual – Night Lies (Feat. Lizzy Land)

The last time we wrote about Mating Ritual, it was on RAEKO‘s ‘Need 2 Know’. This time around, Mating Ritual have produced a stand out track called ‘Night Lies’, featuring Lizzy Land.

‘Night Lies’ is at the forefront of modern day electronic music, with robust vocals and nostalgic drums that ring of a faraway musical utopia.

The track is the second to be released from the band’s debut album ‘How You Gonna Stop It?’, which will be released as two six-track volumes – Volume 1 on 24 January, and Volume 2 in April.

Sounds like: KYKO, Sir Sly, Goldroom, Huntar, Pacific Air, Ten Fé, Blossoms, VÉRITÉ
