Young Ritual, the indie/alt passion project of Singer/Songwriter Dylan Grantham, has released his new single, “You” today. The warm track is an energetic indie rock song that snarls, dreams, and hits you in the chest, calling out to the restless part of you. The gritty guitar and stunning vocals are sure to make you want to roll the windows down and sing along, even if it’s still a little early in the year to do so.
Raised in the fabulous midwest, Young Ritual is a bright example of what can grow out of relentless dreaming. The trademark of Young Ritual would be confessional lyrics clothed in 70’s folk-rock vibes that meet super-indie-rock energy for an experience that pulls your heart out of your chest. Oh, and lots of glitter. With a handful of releases under his belt including recent singles, Peace Of Mind, Together, Alone, dirty rock anthem Julianna, and the snarling new song You, Young Ritual is proving to be as prolific as any artist in his home of Michigan. That, mixed with a live show that shifts quickly from the American song styles of Bob Dylan and Randy Newman to writhing around at the crowd’s feet in the style of The National or Father John Misty, is why Young Ritual has the reputation of being one of Michigan’s most dynamic up and coming artists.
