No Ritual is the kind of act you'll brag about seeing in someone's basement ten years from now. Their lo-fi bedroom rock flows through the same sonic vein as Beach Fossils or early Sonic Youth. The songs are hook-heavy, pushing catchy little guitar riffs that meander and branch off in different directions. Being a three-piece band, their arrangments are decidedly minmalist. They've honed the skill of doing a lot with very little, patching song sections together with subtle accents that serve as satisfying variations. Sometimes setting limitations can open up undiscovered creative pathways, little artistic rabbit holes into which the trio dives without reservation. They know how to create high energy yields with low energy inputs, which is why No Ritual is a band we can all have faith in. Their artistic process is sustainable.
