Fresh off their kaleidoscopic debut LP “Plans”, Brooklyn-based trio Ritual Talk is back with “If”, a driving yet gentle blanket of summer haze. The nostalgic track highlights a number of the indie outfit’s signature turns: warm melodies and hypnotic textures building to washed out euphoria. “If” marks the first song of a new era for the band defined by more complete collaboration and maturing creative tendencies pulling from a wide palette of influences and inspirations. After catching the touring bug on their cross-country adventures in 2018, Ritual Talk has been cramming into their gleaming steed of a Honda Odyssey to take their show on the road every chance they get.
When pressed for a tidy answer, Ritual Talk will tell you they make psychedelic indie rock with a hint of soul. But there’s no need to listen for long to find that each song uses their unmistakable blend of lush instrumentation and exploratory vocal arrangements to form a cohesive yet diverse body of work. Alex, Dylan, and Tom use every limb they have to transcend their three-person appearance, enveloping the listener in a cozy new world of alien warmth, spurting out wild new textures at blazing speeds with ease. Blink and you’ll miss it.
