RY, the Australian freedom-finder seeps inspiration from his surroundings, and has done since his nature-drenched childhood. Done with the industries influence on sounds he was creating, he became RY X. The product? Fragile songs that are built on reverb-drenched guitars and his searching vocal.
He did things his own way, recording to tape and enjoying hissy demos, making the Berlin EP in 2013. Somehow, a song recorded in a shack found itself up next to Rihanna on radio playlists. A track redefining song structures has now amassed 70 million Spotify plays and counting.
Still pushing onto untouched territory, his 2016 Dawn LP is something else. If you want a live experience packed with intricacy and heartbreaking sincerity in every single sound, this one’s for you.
Please note seats will be best available stalls and circle.
