Ritual Talk – “Something To Look Forward To”


“Something To Look Forward To” is a captivating, evolving track from Brooklyn-based act Ritual Talk. A highlight from their debut LP, released on Friday, the track evolves from murky lo-fi ruminations to crisply melodic accompaniments. “Everybody says my days are numbers,” the weary vocals start, ascending just after the two-minute mark into twangy clarity. The final minute is whirring and beautiful, with symphonic touches aiding the now-clear vocals and guitar accompaniments. The track plays like the progression of a foggy landscape into one that’s entirely clear, now showcasing a beautiful sunrise.

“Something To Look Forward To” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2018’ Spotify playlist.
