Post-Punk / Alternative-Rock band Dead Rituals has released a new single entitled Closer. The single features on their upcoming self-titled EP, set for release on September 25th.
This composition provokes raw and unprecedented emotions, through the nostalgic feeling conveyed through the use of drums and guitars. The instrumental is fast paced and the vocals feel almost melancholic yet intimate. It is an understatement to say that this is a well composed track, because the nature and sound created by Dead Rituals is unlike anything I've ever heard, and I felt a genuine warmth in my heart listening to this surreal and timeless piece.
This is a highly recommended track and you can listen to it here:
Dead Rituals is an alternative rock band founded by Andrea Caccese.
Over the past 15 years, he has been traveling and writing music with various bands and collaborators. This new project stems from sessions recorded in New York City, Melbourne, and Naples, amidst significant life changes.
The bustle of downtown Manhattan. A remote beach town on the Pacific coast. Historic alleys and hidden pathways in the heart of the Italian South. Each place affected the songs, and each track explores different ideas, held together by the personal lyrics.
The four songs on Dead Rituals’ debut EP capture the immediacy of punk and alternative music. They also incorporate the textures of new-wave, noise, and shoegaze.
“Run” combines punk-pop with throwback influences, like Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound.
