Londoner JW Ridley has returned with a beautifully understated new single ‘1990’.
The new single follows motorik, urgent sliver of alternative-indie-disco collaboration with Dan Carey ‘Everything (Deathless)’, and sees Ridley embark on an immersive journey inwards. More focused on atmosphere and delicate ambience, ‘1990’ is led by rippling piano and warm chimes of guitar, it builds from an origin of fragility into a stunning supernova climax. This is the sort of captivating, emotion-filled song that compels you to listen, demanding all of your undivided attention. Great to hear from JW Ridley again and hopefully we’ll be treated to further new releases in the not so distant future too.
For now, of course there is the no so small matter of ‘1990’. Enjoy its stunning qualities below.
