RY X Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Ry X, real name, Ry Cumming, is an Australian singer/songwriter but not the kind who sits there with a guitar and strums his feelings away. He builds soundscapes with skittering drums and clicks and gently sings his heart out over them. It could be said there’s a similarity to Bon Iver, but I wouldn’t really want to force that comparison through. His new album, Unfurl, is his third. LP and CD on Infectious Music.
This is Australian Ry X’s debut full-length album, a follow-up to his Berlin EP. Dawn is an emotionally frank piece of work, with Ry’s tender vocals bearing his heart over subtle instrumentals. The man’s got a pop sensibility but with a super-intimate approach. Dawn is released on the Infectious Music label.
