'TOTEM' Out Now

RYAT - 'TOTEM' Out Now

RYAT's debut album for Brainfeeder, TOTEM, is out now digitally worldwide.

TOTEM blends classical elements and cinematic sounds with experimental time changes. Twisting through the gritty, disheveled beats like an elegant ribbon, RYAT’s gracefully processed vocals merge with electronic surprises to create a work of intense abstract art. 

Trading the urban jungle of Philadelphia for the concrete badlands of Los Angeles, RYAT’s transformation was juxtapositioned with a new awareness of her natural surroundings and unexpected visits from animals, whose dream partners give the album its name. Every track of TOTEM represents a different spirit animal, each with a message translated through RYAT’s experimentation with unusual sound signatures. 

Giving us just a glimpse of her journey through fire-filled vocals and captivating sonic twists, poetess RYAT lays an emotional path into a dream where animals speak in music and the beats have come alive.

TOTEM is out now at the Ninjashop and iTunes as a digital download. A CD release will be available 11 June (EU) / 26 June (NA). You can watch the official video for "Howl" below, and check a mix by RYAT for Mary Anne Hobb's XFM radio show here. Head to the Brainfeeder SoundCloud page for a TOTEM album sampler, and see all of her upcoming live dates here.
