Editors’ Notes The second RY X album from Australian-born, Los Angeles-based Ry Cuming is aptly titled. The yearning strings of icy opener “Body” gently welcome the listener, ushering in a record that is an exercise in slow reveal. Skittering beats may be the bedrock of “Untold,” but by its end the song is floating on an ascending synth line and Cuming’s haunting falsetto. “YaYaYa” eases to life with somber acoustic guitar, but climaxes with multilayered vocals and the chanting of its title. Ultimately, Unfurl is an album where intimate becomes widescreen (“Hounds”), where organic and digital sounds collide to create the ethereal (“Coven”).
