Best New Tracks: RY X "Berlin"


You've probably never heard of Australian-born Los Angeles-based artist RY X, nor have you heard of the new Swedish label Dumont Dumont of which he is the first signee. But your ignorance doesn't preclude RY X's "Berlin" from being a best new track.

"Berlin" is a slice of minimalist perfection. The track is nothing but a guitar and RY X's gorgeous, haunting voice. The track is as effortlessly beautiful as anything I've heard this year, save for maybe that High Highs record. There's honestly nothing else I can add here, so just go ahead and play it below.

Listen to RY X "Berlin" right now if you know what's good for you:

RY X's debut EP Berlin is out now via the aforementioned Dumont Dumont. And yes you're correct, "Berlin" is on there. You can pick it up here. And if you're in the market for the vinyl, head over to Rough Trade.

Thanks for stopping by Bitcandy, where we're going to put this song on repeat until something prettier comes along.
