British indie-pop artist Ritho releases his debut EP, 'RITHO'S WORLD', exploring the complex mind of an over-thinker.
The difficult debut EP can be a daunting prospect for many artists. However, it’s one that indie sensation Ritho has relished, compiling six tracks spanning from hazy alt-pop to infectious rock. The 23-year-old proves, over 17 minutes, that he’s a serious one to watch if his songwriting maintains an upward trajectory.
Inspired by alternative contemporaries like Dominic Fike, EASYLIFE and Benee, the London-hailing artist finds solace in the music-making process. Allowing him to express his innermost feelings, Ritho’s preference for honest storytelling and heartfelt lyricism has already started to resonate with people far beyond the capital.
On ‘RITHO’S WORLD’, the emerging artist ties together introspective songwriting with contagious melodies and electronic soundscapes. Giving insight into the mind of an over-thinker, the project creates vivid worlds that feel deeply personal to Ritho, who depicts real-life events with admirable sincerity. You feel as if these honest portrayals will remain a constant in the singer-songwriter’s music, even as he continues to evolve as a musician going forward.
