Ricky Lorimer is one of the most mesmerising Acoustic acts on the scene to date, putting other acts to shame with this electrifying ambience that he creates with his overwhelming vocals and the succinct soar of his guitar.
The singer songwriter hails from the North Coast of Ireland, the twang of his heritage is blissfully dominant throughout his debut EP but really shines through in the 3rd track on the EP with his title track ‘Traveller’. His potent charm stings through his strenuous lyrical abilities that carry like litter in the breeze through this track. Yet, each of the tracks ring with their own eclectic pioneering Indie sound, Lorimers’ signature romantically Alt Rock resonance is deftly infused into them. What really makes the tracks for me is the raw emotion that’s poured into them that wraps around the tight harmonies from the cacophonies of the percussion. Each instrument palpably thrashes through the melodies, that sound as if they come second nature to the singer songwriter who aims for his sound to become a vehicle of hope.
