Continuing to gain industry recognition, Derry artist, Ryan Vail is all set to release his second album, ‘Distorted Shadows’. Ahead of its April 2018 album release, take a test drive with new single ‘As It Tears’.
Far outstretching the confines of ambient dance grooves, Vail sets new definitions in modern composition. Juxtaposing flourishes come together in an alluring work of art. The first few notes of this mechanized melody cast an ominous but intriguing incandescence transporting the listener into this dystopian, Blade Runner-esque composition. Sensuous vocals and smouldering lyrics burn beneath smoky dance beats. The bridge is built by a crescendo of sharp synthetic brasses in this electronic sonata.
Not particularly hook laden, as such, but this track will get under your skin. This evocative creation swirling around in your brain continuing to haunt you long after.
‘Distorted Shadows’ will be released April 2018 on Quiet Arch. It’s available for pre-order now here.
