Within this rich palette of sound resides Amaya's uniquely captivating voice, restrained yet beautiful, with rich breathy tones offering touching moments of yearning and lament.
Amaya began work on Rituals in 2015 while residing in Berlin. During this period, she also spent time performing live and completed a solo tour of venues throughout Spain.
She returned to Australia a year later, where she formed the band behind the new album, featuring Andrew Keese (guitar), Hugo Cran (drums) and Giles Fielke (bass).
Over the course of two EPs, three albums and countless live shows Amaya Laucirica has established a unique presence in the Australian musical landscape.
From her childhood in rural South Australia, Amaya first moved to Sydney before finally settling in Melbourne where, in 2008, she released her debut album Sugar Lights.
A beguiling and delicate blend of country, folk, rock and pop, Sugar Lights was critically lauded and resulted in Amaya being invited to perform at the North by Northeast (NXNE) music festival in Canada.
In 2010 she released Early Summer, an album that truly defined Amaya's sound and captured the attention of critics and listeners alike.
Her third album, Sway was released in 2014 and now comes Rituals, which is a personal and intimate album dealing with themes of time, frustration, acceptance, loss and love.
Musically, it is a richly complex and layered album that, although intricate and sometimes dense, also contains sparse moments of quiet transcendence and space.
The album marks a major artistic statement and is the perfect demonstration of her talent for her first international release.
