The Black Ryder

On their upcoming album, The Door Behind the Door, the Australian duo of vocalist Aimee Nash and guitarist Scott Von Ryper continue to craft bewitching songs that are as strange and expansively mysterious as the Outback. In the past, they’ve kicked up a dusty, roots/blues sound, but their new song “Seventh Moon” unwinds with a Mazzy Star dream-pop haziness, as Nash whispers delicately over Von Ryper’s slow passages of echoing guitar and keyboards. The Sydney natives are now based in L.A., and they often broaden their sound by collaborating with members of Brian Jonestown Massacre, Pink Mountaintops and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. But ultimately, the heart of The Black Ryder’s sound lies in the intimate ways Nash and Von Ryper exchange breathy confidences and shape-shifting shadows.
