RY X – Sweat (LIVE)

ry x

RY X was a seed that was planted, gently watered and nurtured. And it has grown, and blossomed. It has already grown beyond what I initially imagined.” – RY X

Ry X is pleased to unveil a beautifully recorded live version of ‘Sweat’, taken from his debut album Dawn, out now via Infectious Records.

Recorded live at Volksbuhne Berlin, much like every track on ‘Dawn’, the song begins with solo plaintive guitar and fragile vocals building over 9 minutes to a crescendo of crushing beats and orchestral arrangements; his threadbare power remaining at the forefront throughout.

The shattering climax and rawness of ‘Sweat’ alongside minimal arrangements enhance the songs emotional pull, “’Sweat’ is about the ghosts of past relationships and choosing between loves… you’re sweating in that situation, just as when you run or hit a boxing bag. That’s emotional sweat”.

Conscientious and unfeigned debut, Dawn is available to purchase/stream now via. Infectious Records, with Ry disclosing how the 12-track LP came to fruition via a candid process of self-discovery and trust – “I have followed my heart and it has been a beautiful process of building trust with myself, as an artist, and person.”

Ry X will play British Summer Time Hyde Park on 3 July, alongside Carole King.
