Italian Post-Punk outfit Dead Rituals has recently released a new single titled "Dark." The song features some familiar elements that have shaped the band's sound thus far. These include dreamy guitars, immersive shoegaze textures, and earnest lyrics with a personal flair. However, the song also offers an added emphasis on electronic sounds. It prominently features a hybrid drum kit and various synth sounds to add to the production.
The song retains a gritty alternative feel while flirting with pop elements and even bits of electronica here and there. Production duo YUME created a remix of the song, which offers a different perspective, leaning more towards the electronic elements of the production. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the band's live rendition has a raw, back-to-basic rock twist devoid of electronics.
