Originating from Australia and now based in LA, RY X releases the beautifully captivating four-track 'Berlin EP' on December 9th through Infectious Music, home to artists such as alt-J, These New Puritans, Drenge and Local Natives.
At just under three minutes, lead track 'Berlin' is the definition of short and sweet. The song's delicate guitar and emotive, echoing falsetto vocals draw you in so completely and feel so engulfing that it's easy to forget this is simply one man's voice and an acoustic guitar. The undulating feel of RY X's voice is at times defeated and at others defiant, but it is this constant transition between serenity and catharsis that makes the EP so special.
The 'Berlin EP' was quietly released in August this year through Swedish label Dumont Dumont to international acclaim. Such is the power and immediacy of 'Berlin', the track got the attention of Sony Bravia who have chosen the track to soundtrack their new TV advert, which is running in the UK, France and Germany from November 1st. 'Berlin' is a track that has immediately connected with people, seeing it jump up the Shazam and Official UK Charts and be placed on Radio 1's playlist.
Following on from the success of RY X's recent captivating sell-out show at London's The Nave this December, seven more European live dates have been announced February 2014, including a date at London's Union Chapel on 17 February 2014. Tickets for the shows go on sale on Wednesday 11th December.
