If there was an artist who completely stole my heart, my body and my mind this year – it would be RY X. Delivering the most exceptional stage aura I have ever been lucky enough to witness, it’s almost impossible to put the beauty of this man’s breath-taking live soundscapes into words, or atleast in the kind of way that would do them true justice.
Having christened 2016 with the success of his debut album ‘Dawn’, the bearded Australian wonder ends his triumphant year with the unveiling of yet another gently building hypnotic beauty, rich in reverb and his gorgeously lilting falsetto. A perfect signature swoon of all his shimmering and haunting sensibilities. If the continued onslaught of sleigh bells and Christmas cheer is making you feel a little worse for wear, melt away in winter’s divine retrospect with this beauty below.
‘Thunder’ is out now via Infectious Records, catch RY X live with Frank Wiedemann next year at Village Underground. Trust me when I say: you won’t want to miss this man live.
