Stream: Ryan Vail – Grow


Derry electronic duo Ryan Vail (Vail and his other half in Katie Cosgrove) have long been one of our favourite acts for summoning a very particular sense of nocturnalism in their music. With a string of quietly brooding tracks under their belt, their latest offering, ‘Grow’, delves even further into the night.

The lead track for the forthcoming EP of the same – set for release via the excellent Champion Sound in early May – the track is imbued with Vail’s ever-impressive analog renderings of self-doubt and enlightenment; a dual subject that he and Cosgrove have been revealing over the last couple of years.

As well as featuring a stream of ‘Grow’, we’re plreased to premiere the debut video interview from Champion Sound TV, featuring Vail and Cosgrove. You can watch that and stream ‘Grow’ below.
