On HYPE NOSTALGIA, Lopez didn’t want to solely focus on the heaviness of her life. Instead, she opted to create an album written from a pre-loss perspective. There are dark moments and devastation throughout, but what largely transpires is Lopez’s ability to reconcile with her emotional trauma by reimagining her past in a way that isn’t shrouded in total darkness, but glimmers of light and hope.

For the accompanying video directed by Leo Pfeifer, Lopez says, “Our aim was to take themes from the record and incorporate them in various ways: the rain (representing loss/grief), the trophies room (representing the overachiever in me), the TV room (representing memory and nostalgia) and me in quarantine now (representing current day reality). For obvious reasons, nostalgia is the central theme of this record as I am writing from an era of pre-loss and pre-grief so we wanted to bring in some surreal elements into each setting to elevate the story and make it interesting.”

Rituals of Mine –  the electronic recording project of Los Angeles-based songwriter Terra Lopez and percussionist Adam Pierce – shares a video for “HEAVYWEIGHT,” a track from its “SLEEPER HOLD” EP released earlier this year on Carpark Records. “Heavyweight” is inspired by the after effects of grief and trauma in relation to the body and mind, particularly Lopez’s own surrounding her father’s suicide and the unexpected loss of her best friend.

 

 

For the accompanying video, Lopez was approached by Pitch Her Productions, an organization that focuses on promoting womxn-identified filmmakers in the industry, who paired her with Ecuadorian artist/filmmaker Domenica Garcia. Nearly the entire cast and crew are womxn-identified and are womxn of color.

Rituals Of Mine has dropped a remix of “BAD NEWS” by friend and collaborator Kevvy (aka Fake Shark). The track is a lush and emotional reimagining of the original on SLEEPER HOLD; an EP that Exclaim Magazine called “beautiful” and “vulnerable”. Stay tuned for the culmination of remixes into the SLEEPER HOLD (Remixes) EP.

“Kevvy and I have become quick friends over our shared love for basketball and music. I sent him the EP early and was so stoked that he asked to do a remix because I was interested in hearing his unique take on one of the most r&b songs I’ve ever made. His remix is lush and emotional and truly takes the song to a cinematic level with his use of strings and piano. I love it.” – Terra Lopez of Rituals Of Mine

Check out the first remix of the series “BURST (Dev The Goon Remix)” here.

SLEEPER HOLD is available on physical and digital formats on the Carpark Shop or at your favorite retailer.
