Los Angeles based outfit Rituals of Mine provide us with not only a brand new single in ‘BURST’ and accompanying music video, but the exciting news of a brand new EP coming your way in October titled ‘SLEEPER HOLD’.
‘BURST’ utilises a dark soundscape that bleeds pure R&B/trap influence in the beats compiled, alongside the haunting vocal melodies and alluring pads. The accompanying music video, directed by Kris Esfandiari (King Woman), utilises a basketball backdrop to highlight a coping mechanism used by the artists in their youth to deal with their issues.
“With this new material, I’m confronting a lot of personal issues I haven’t addressed before. I made a promise to myself that I’m no longer going to play small or hide behind metaphors, that I’m going to really lean into self-confidence, self-reliance and take up space. ‘BURST’ is the beginning of that.” – Rituals of Mine
