NEW MUSIC: “Alter” by RYD

We don’t really know too much about RYD – apart from him being 21 and from London, but we love this new song too much to care!

RYD (the moniker of Ryan Downie) has been causing shockwaves on SoundCloud this year, gaining thousands and thousands of plays on his soulful soothing tracks.

The newcomer who confesses to drawing musical inspirations from The xx and Bon Iver describes the meaning behind his new release “about distorting your image to fit in”.

We’d like to add to that description in saying it’s pure bliss in it’s simplicity.
