More Dark Tunes from Ritual Howls

ritualThis is some dark stuff here, and I dig it. Ritual Howls, who are releasing their new album, Into the Water, this Friday, are here to brandish another bit of dark post-pop. I love the way the band really relies upon their musicianship to allow for the song to unfold at its own pace, rather than hit you overhead with a hook (a la the Killers). This allows you get lost in the corners of the song, as the guitars carefully dance in hidden corners and the drums hit heavy in the distance. Look for their new LP this Friday via Felte…and a tour along the West Coast come October.

Hear a New One from Ritual Howls

ritualMan, I think I’m in love with this new track from Ritual Howls. There’s this propulsive no-wave new-wave aspect that carries throughout, filled in with lots of negative space to really allow the musical elements to shine. Don’t get me wrong, the deep tonal quality of the vocals is fitting, and adds a strong layer to it, but the musicality alone would have sealed this song for me. This recalls the darker side of dream pop to me, and I fully expect Into the Water, their newest effort, to be something quite enjoyable. Look for its release on August 19th via Felte.

More From Ritual Howls

unnamed (6)Around a month ago we shared with you guys a new single from Detroit based up and coming band Ritual Howls. Well today we’ve got another new single for you in the form of this new track “Park Around the Corner”. Yet again I am intrigued by the band’s ability to blend heavy pop elements from a group like Joy Division, and mesh them well with a poppier industrial band like Cold Cave. One can even sense a hint of Nathan’s favorite artist Marilyn Manson…. I suggest you check it out now.

This track will appear on Into the Water due out August 19th on felte.

New Music from Ritual Howls

ritualhowsRitual Howls are not here to make you dance. They’re bringing a different set of electronic compositions, ones designed to haunt your late night walks through darkened alleys. There’s a feeling of overwhelming anxiety, a suffocating eeriness that dangerously brings about the underbelly of pop structures the band implores. This is our first listen to music from their forthcoming album, Into the Water, which is going to see a release on August 19th via Felte. See that dark hole on the album artwork in the left corner? Like the music in this track, it’s waiting to swallow you whole.
