20. You Should Have Heard This By Now: Raleigh Ritchie

About a year ago, I signed up to a mailing list in return for a three track ep. I was on a free music binge so in the end I didn’t even end up unzipping the downloaded file. As part of the binge I downloaded one tracks separately and gave it the five stars on the iPod so I remembered it. I didn’t for long time.

This summer, I’ve been listening to a lot of music in work. I don’t have the chance to keep putting on albums so I need playlists that’ll last for a few hours at a time. One of my fallback playlists is my top rated playlist which just has every song that I’ve given five stars. So I heard this song a couple of days in a row and it really stuck. And I’m still getting these emails every two months but I still haven’t opened them or tried to see who the artist was, band or just a dude, I knew nothing. Until about two weeks ago. I was flicking through music channels on tv, something I haven’t done in years, and a song was just starting so the title and artist came up and there it was, Raleigh Ritchie. And the video, it had the guy who plays Grey Worm in “Game of Thrones”. I was pretty impressed. Fair play chung fella, you’ve a real actor man in the video.

Turns out he’s the fucking guy. Raleigh Ritchie, emailing me for a year, is actually a super duper multi talented blud.

I thought that was interesting… whatever like…

Anyway, the original track is worth checking out. It’s really atmospheric and has some cool lyrics. The video is also pretty trippy. Have a look and a listen. Look at me being fun and trendy and giving people little GoT factoids and calling it GoT. Am I cool? I think so. Sweet.

Shmownload it here (only for shmad lads)
