Rival Consoles, has returned with new single “Coda.” The track follows up his album Now Is, which dropped last fall via Erased Tapes (Nils Frahm). The single is accompanied by the announcement of new North American tour dates, which will see West performing at notable venues throughout the United States and Canada in September and October for the first time since his sold out North American tour in 2018. See below for the full list of dates.

London-based musician and producer Ryan Lee West aka Rival Consoles, on “Coda”:

“Coda started as a really late night experiment around a chord progression that seemed haunting but also had some strange beauty,” West says. “The whole piece is centered around this theme. I wanted to embrace the dark and quiet moments of the nighttime but also the energy of people who were maybe moving around London late at night with a nod to house music.”

Building on his reputation for driving, experimental electronic music that makes synthesizers sound human, Rival Consoles expands on his consistent desire to create a more organic, living sound, seeing him forming pieces that capture a sense of songwriting behind the machines.
