Chasing the night up and down the gothic alleyways around the stately squares of Edinburgh ‘RITU▲LS’ were found and formed. Touting influences as wide as Kendrick Lamar, David Bowie, Arcade Fire, The Horrors and The Kinks, these sounds reveal that bands beating heartbeat and it’s a potent combination. Add Ryan Sandison’s (spectacular) vocals to the mix, which brings to mind the likes of Nick Cave and Edwin Collins, you’ve got something very special indeed.
Debut single ‘Black River’ released on Skeleton Key Records (James Skelly of The Coral’s label and birthplace of Blossoms) is out now. For more music, info + gigs click HERE
