Rituals of Mine BAD NEWS (Kevvy Remix)
December 11, 2019
Following the release of SLEEPER HOLD, Rituals of Mine presents a remix of “BAD NEWS” by Terra Lopez’s close friend, Kevvy. "Kevvy and I have become quick friends over our shared love for basketball and music. I sent him the EP early and was so stoked that he asked to do a remix because I was interested in hearing his unique take on one of the most r&b songs I've ever made. His remix is lush and emotional and truly takes the song to a cinematic level with his use of strings and piano. I love it."
SLEEPER HOLD, the new EP from Los Angeles-based electronic and alt-R&B duo Rituals of Mine, is songwriter Terra Lopez and live percussionist Adam Pierce. Inspired by ‘90s trip-hop, footwork, and downtempo R&B, the band has crafted a uniquely heavy sound that fuels its cathartic and uplifting performances. After years of obscuring her story and emotions through metaphorical lyrics, Lopez felt a sudden confidence to write more directly about her experiences as a queer woman of color. Lopez began fleshing out the songs with her longtime collaborator and producer Wes Jones, who helped turn Lopez’s heartfelt writing about trauma and personal growth into urgent and powerful electronic tracks. Lopez hopes that with the expanded sound of her new EP, Rituals of Mine will reach new audiences, inspiring more listeners to confront and overcome their own struggles.
