This man’s voice is out of this world.
I love Of Monster’s and Men so much. There’s something about their sound that’s so magical; it has a way of creeping into your soul and and translating it into perfect lyrics.
Though I’m not a Hunger Games fan, I’m over the moon about this new Of Monsters and Men track on the recent Catching Fire soundtrack.
It’s hard letting go,
I’m finally at peace, but it feels wrong,
Slow I’m getting up,
My hands and feet are weaker than before.
Silhouettes, Of Monsters and Men
Somewhere between the acoustic elegance of Jose Gonzalesand Justin Vernon’s (Bon Iver) picture perfect range, LA-based AustralianRy Xentrancing howls lure you into his latest haunted folk-pop gem, “Berlin.”
There’s just something about every lyric, every gorgeous note hit. It’s been a while since a folk record has struck a chord with me the way this one has. The lush acoustic opening gracefully leads into Ry X’s first climatic howl, slowly descending back into a more rich, alluring arpeggio and peaking every so often do deliver shivering lyrics such as “tell me I’m not going home and I’ll stop waiting by the phone.” Like a fox in the wild, Ry X channels a force that’s both mysterious and cunning. His sounds play on the minds curious nature by leading in with intimate harmonies, only to lyrically impale you at every turn, slowly building a whirlpool of the most beautiful sadness you’ve ever heard.
With such pristine pitch and a gift for poignant, highly captivating songwriting, Ry X is a brilliant creature you can’t help but admire from afar, but only at the cost of your own heartbreak.
