Released last August 11, 2012 through Dedpop, the Northern England-based musician gives to us four tracks oozing with infectious electronic synthpop that will surely make you feel that it’s summer all over again.
Title track Shelter Cove opens up with tribal beats and dangerously addictive synthlines. Glowing electro tunes flow steadily through each note, creating the perfect laid-back anthem.
Adding a bit more energy, Ventura Sunrise showcases a jungle of psychedelic tunes backdropped with hand-clapping melodies. Breaking Waves follows with a bit of mystical approach as chime-like electro sounds are paired with a groovy, r&b-like arrangement.
Neon Drive (Sean Eskimo Remix) seals up the album with deep-toned beats rapidly pulsing with light electro melodies. The original tune has been twisted into a sonic piece reminiscent of an action race soundtrack.
Overall, Rykard‘s Shelter Cove is a cohesive project that delivers a main theme of sun, beach, and energy. The tracks here will surely calm your nerves and chanel some chill-out vibes.
