Peace Ritual x Brick Peace Ritual Tape Turquoise
"Tears Of Joy" and "Trust Fall" established Peace Ritual's genesis, balancing swirling drones, jangly guitar layers and soulful pop sensibilities. Between the two singles, Peace Ritual have been played across a multitude of triple j programs, they have been added to rotation on FBi Radio as well as on MTV Upload and added to a weekend playlist on RAGE.
Peace Ritual is the dream pop brainchild of Joel Martorana (Endless Heights) and Thomas Elliott (Caged Existence) with co-writing and production credits from Sam Bassal (Ocean Grove). Born out of bedroom jams between tours, Peace Ritual was originally conceived as a hardcore band, but the duo unintentionally gravitated to writing rock or pop choruses and ultimately decided to pivot and commit to collaborating on a sound that felt most natural. Blending acoustic guitar, drum machines and synths, Peace Ritual abandon boundaries to find their balance.
Releasing through Last Ride Records and Brick + Mortar, Peace Ritual take a unique place within the hardcore affiliated subculture, donning hypnotic and cult-like characteristics while searching for meaning and a sense of purpose along the way.
