Five Rituals are back, and they're doing it with V. Designed to be a perfect listening experience, the experimental journey is infused with out of place rhythms, conflicting sounds, and easy breaks.
Five Rituals proposes an overwhelming narrative. Through solid arrangements and solid programming, this record becomes a vehicle for reverential music that manages to spill out enough of the artist's own ideas to shake off the high age, allowing it to exist in its own right as credible. It is a unique work, which consolidates a sound full of cinematographic influences, until finding a set that is a progression of chords that are serotonin bombs, also testimony to a complex era and society, which seeks redemption at all costs.
Altogether, this album is as experimental as it is intense and addictive, it takes over oneself like sweet poison, while progressively transporting us, as few producers with a certain fluidity are willing to do. We do not know what the future holds, but we do know that V is testimony to a turbulent and uncertain present, which will remain in our memory forever. For records like this, we can continue to fight for a better future.
