“Rituals is the wonderful fourth album from the amazing Amaya Laucirica…. blend(ing) the swirling contours of the Cocteau Twins with the wistful melodies of The Go-Betweens and the sonic depth of Yo La Tengo.” The Line Of Best Fit (UK)
“With each new release she gives us more atmospheric, transcendent moments.” – Double J – “‘More Than This’ is one of the best new tracks”… starting off “dark and dirty with its grinding noise guitars, but soon becomes airy and sweet thanks to some ostentatious synth and Laucirica’s sweet, effortless vocal.”
Rituals is a personal and intimate album dealing with themes of time, frustration, acceptance, loss and love. Musically, it is a richly complex and layered album that, although intricate and sometimes dense, also contains sparse moments of quiet transcendence and space. Rituals marks a major artistic statement and is the perfect demonstration of her talent for her first international release.
