RY X from Australia released his Berlin EP (vinyl and digital) through the Swedish label Dumont Dumont.
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.
"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"

- 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. "
- Your Music Radar (Australia)
