RY X ~ Berlin!

RY X Berlin Artwork!I belong to an online world where there is a constant race to discover the next great artist or to unearth the newest rising star before anyone else; but sometimes just slowing down to appreciate an amazing song and forgetting about the chase is just what I should do more of.  Australian newcomer RY X burst on the scene a few months ago with the release of his debut single “Berlin” and the response has been staggering.  And for good reason.  RY X strips down and throws away all the excess gimmicky elements so common in today’s music and delivers a beautifully captivating track that is incredibly powerful yet stunningly simple.  There is an intimacy in the vocals I can easily relate to and I feel like I am experiencing the ebbs and flows of emotion behind the lyrics right with them.  “Berlin” packs a potently relaxing punch in a surprisingly short amount of time.  And even though the song seems to end far too prematurely for my tastes, I am fully engrossed the whole time.   Now that’s entering Bon Iver and Ben Howard company for me which is truly impressive.

RY X has recently released “Vampires”, the second track from his upcoming ‘Berlin’ EP due out on August 28th via the newly formed Swedish record label Dumont Dumont.  And even though I am anxious to hear all the new music on that debut offering,  I think I will just sit back and enjoy this fantastic single just a little while longer!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
