“Comparisons with Boards of Canada are inevitable. However, he has forged his own sound. Ictis, the first teaser for his new album, Luminosity, is as wide and expansive as the County he hails from. Opening with a hint of 808 State’s Pacific State, Ictis emerges into slow-chilled trip-hop beats, dub bass and shimmering synths that mingle to produce trance-like melodies. This dark-edged, introspective and contemplative mood allows the listener to create their own journey.”
RYKARD Luminosity is officially live on iTunes and is currently charting at #135 on the Electronic Charts!
RYKARD released Ictis today on his Soundcloud Page, a taste of what’s to come from his forthcoming album Luminosity! We figured it was a good time to also throw the tune up on YouTube as well. Luminosity drops Sept 17th on digital outlets worldwide, with limited CD and Vinyl to follow. Pre-orders available at iTunes and Amazon.
RYKARD’s second album Luminosity maintains a similar philosophy but takes things to another level, a stunning arrangement of atmospheric electronica with wizard like melodies from another dimension. Luminosity is set for a Sept 17th, 2016 release with limited CD’s coming October and also exclusive limited Vinyl coming soon after..

Catnip & Claws is just a girl who writes music with a penchant for cats and computers. Really, that is all she would like you to know, but for the curious…there is a little more…Once upon a time, there was a musician with a love of technology and a dream of bending rules and weaving tales. She blended instruments, electronica, the sounds of life and random paraphernalia. She wants to tell you a story of old times and new adventures. She hopes each piece takes you on an enchanted journey of modern nostalgia through melody, texture and rhythmic timelines.
