Slovenlie Gets Vulnerable14/12/2016
To follow up her debut single “Disaster,” Sovenlie drops her new song “Ritual,” which has equally captivating, pace, and mesmerizing vocals. In addition, she opens up about her acute OCD through the song.
The artist has an intriguing background, born in Newcastle and growing up in Glastonbury. When it comes to OCD, she says, “My very first OCD ritual took place in bed every night, as a child. It was very simple; I repeated the chant ‘my family will get murdered tonight’ 3 times. You must understand, this isn’t as psychotic as it sounds; I have always had the belief that the opposite happens of whatever I wish for, so this for me was a way of protecting my family. Since then I have had infinite variations of patterns and chants and bizarre behaviors that have revolved around patterns of numbers”.
The eerie atmospheric synth of the song turns into an electronic off-beat percussion, then layered with soaring effects and a floaty vocal melody. It’s an infectious and beautiful song, bound to be a hit.
