The first signing to Dumont Dumont was RY X, from Australia and now based in LA, and his Berlin EP.
RY X is far more than his voice and an acoustic guitar. The fragility found in “Berlin” and its echoing vocals allows the darkness to emerge. The undulating feel of RY X voice, at times defeated, at others defiant, but it’s that constant transition between serenity and catharsis that makes “Berlin” something really special.
In November 2014 the second single “Sweat” was released.
“an absolute masterpiece of a track from start to finish. It’s honestly one of the most cleanly gorgeous songs I’ve heard in a very long time”
- I Guess I’m Floating (US)
“intelligent and intuitive beyond anything we’ve heard done in acoustic circles for a long while”
- The Line of Best Fit (UK)
“his upcoming release is stunning”
- Pigeons and Planes (US)
“We at Rough Trade shops predict a big future for this special talent”
- Rough Trade (UK)
“Want to listen to something quite beautiful? Well you should get a load of RY X and the track ‘Berlin’ which will ripple across you like a hybrid Bon Iver & Matt Corby track. It’s not just good. It’s exquisite audio silk. Get it into your ears now.”
