RYDER HAVDALE RELEASES EPIC EXPERIMENTAL TRACK "MY HEART'S A MESS"

Ryder Havdale sends us on a polyphonic trip through the heart with his new song "My Heart's A Mess" - out June 19, 2018. The Berlin/Toronto bred producer experiments with textures inspired by glitch and techno fused with elements of alternative rock. His sound is driven by energetic synth melodies that are comparable to contemporary pop songs, only Ryder Havdale incorporates way more grit and distortion in his sound design. If you enjoy music by artists like SLOW MAGIC or THE GLITCH MOB, then you will definitely enjoy Ryder Havdale's hybrid style of IDM.

ABOUT RYDER HAVDALE + "MY HEART'S A MESS":
CANDY HAVEN, the new full-length by Berlin/Toronto songwriter and producer Ryder Havdale, is a synth-infused, experimental and polyphonic landscape of texture and sound. Havdale bridges the gap between techno, house and pop songwriting sensibilities, inspired by the textures and rhythms of the urban sprawl of a year spent in Berlin.

The result on CANDY HAVEN is an integration of two worlds; Havdale’s past guitar-laden roots fronting the sweaty, voluminous Toronto-based rock collective The Mohawk Lodge, exchanged for analog synths and drum machines. Digital sounds and physical energies are in harmonious balance: the songs call to mind electronic acts such as Caribou, and Jon Hopkins, while it was a show with Slow Magic in Vienna that was the catalyst for hanging up the acoustic guitar (he showed up to open the show with), and diving into the electronic world.

Produced by Ryder Havdale alongside Ewan Kay (Moon King, Omhouse, Rykka) and mastered in Berlin by Bo Kondren (Caribou), Havdale also enlisted a top shelf list of Canadian musicians (Joseph Shabason of Destroyer, Maylee Todd, Arlen Thompson of Wolf Parade) to join him in this musical quest to find emotional catharsis through digital music. Like Bowie and Eno before him, Berlin has had a similar inspirational effect on Havdale: the churning, vibrating, luminescent sights and sounds of the German capital weaved their way through the circuitboards of the synthesizers in Havdale’s Mitte apartment, and the result is the party-heavy stomp of CANDY HAVEN.
