Mura Masa - R.Y.C - Indies Exclusive Silver Vinyl LP
Released: 17 Jan 2020
Mura Masa releases his much-anticipated second album, R.Y.C (Raw Youth Collage). Guests including Clairo, slowthai, Tirzah, Georgia, Ellie Rowsell from Wolf Alice (and Alex himself stepping out as lead-vocalist).
R.Y.C (or ‘Raw Youth Collage’) is an ambitious and exciting left-turn from an artist and producer whose ability to always surprise is matched only by his remarkably consistent, singular vision. Breathing new life into - amongst other things – New Wave, Emo, Folk and 90s Rave – tracks like No Hope Generation reinvent Mura Masa's sound whilst also paying tribute to the alternative roots which shaped him when he first became a genuine musical outsider, growing up in the remote island of Guernsey. And it’s this fondness for the music of adolescence – reworked in thoroughly modern, bedroom-pop fashion – that became an analogue for the theme of the album as a whole.
