Christina McGeehan, better known by her stage name Ryat, is a producer and multi-instrumentalist from Los Angeles. She was recently signed to Ninja Tune (link), while formerly releasing her music on Flying Lotus’ (insert Link) label brainfeeder (link), both ranking among the highly influential labels in electronic music. This can easily interpreted as a testament to her great talents.
‘Howl’ is taken from her 2012 album ‘Totem’ and it’s a glitchy experimental synthpop song that inevitably evokes memories of Björk. Especially the longing, slightly tormented voice of Ryat shows an uncanny similarity to that of the Icelandic icon. It creates an atmosphere of nostalgia and I suddenly feel a strong urge to go and explore mysterious and gloomy Scandinavian forests full of friendly creatures from fantasy worlds.
Genre: Experimental / Synthpop
