Ritual Talk premiere single "More Than I Can Mention" + celebrate release at Union Pool on 2/10

Ritual Talk's newest single "More Than I Can Mention" is downright exciting. From the get-go, the sublime guitar hook is intriguing and has you hanging onto the end of each juicy note. The song builds into an old-school, everything-goes indie rock tune with a dose of soul to keep things groovy. This wall of sound is nothing like you've heard before- it's carefully executed, properly funky, but most importantly: huge. "More Than I Can Mention" is a song you'll want to put on repeat and rock out to, all day. The band plays Union Pool on 2/10 to celebrate the release. -Geena Kloeppel

Ritual Talk premiere video for new single, "Sense"

Among the many jaw-dropping moments from Ritual Talk's performance at Pianos a few weeks back, one that noticeably caught the eyes of the crowd was their artful 5-person vocal harmonization. With their newest single, "Sense" (brand new video below), they replicate that skill perfectly on record. The band's second track from their upcoming debut EP, Rippled Glass, is soothing and ethereal as was their debut single, "Help I've Been Dreaming"; but the vocal performance here is sublime, floating over a more psych, alt-soul vibe. The track's progression is reminiscent of Alabama Shakes' soul rock "Sound and Color," mixed with Alexander DeSimine's Dirty Projectors-esque vocals; the accompanying harmonies, and the final buildup, will send chills down your spine. And if the rest EP is anything as this single and their live performance, it will be one hell of a release. - Pearse Devlin

Ritual Talk releases single "Help I've Been Dreaming", plays Pianos 08.04

Psych-Rock band Ritual Talk released an extremely intriguing debut single (with video, streaming below) entitled, “Help, I’ve Been Dreaming”, and is scheduled to perform at Pianos on August 4th. The track is an art-rock song that flows through so many sounds, it becomes difficult to even categorize, yet manage to stay within tasteful boundaries, never sacrificing musical coherence for the sake of experimentation. A rather complex ¾ beat starts the song off, traveling into more psych-rock, wavier sounds from both the guitar and harmonizing female and male vocals. The lyrics are serene, succint but poetic. Then, a more indie rock sound evolves through intricate guitar pattering, slowly evolving as background organs enter the soundscape. If you dig this single, keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming album and don't miss them live!– Pearse Devlin
