Like all my Myrone’s best work, “Groove Ritual” captures the aesthetic of late ’80s / early ’90s L.A. beach culture with aplomb. Roller skates on the boardwalk, beach volleyball, skimp red bikinis, a sports car with the top down… it’s all here, in music form. That funky bass, the synthesizer tones right out of that little Casio you had in your bedroom, a synth horn section and, of course, Myrone’s silky guitar leads that carry the melody of the song throughout all serve to time warp you back to a magical place that perhaps never even existed in real life. It’s absolutely perfect.
Humanity is a collection of all brand new songs that’ll be fresh to even the most devoted of Myrone’s Soundcloud followers — only a couple of these have seen the light of day before.
Check it out below. Humanity comes out on August 18th and will be available on Bandcamp; meanwhile you can download “Groove Ritual” for whatever price you feel like paying, including free!
