Electronic/alt-synth duo RYAL is a collaborative project between singer, keyboardist Jacque Ryal and producer Aaron Nevezie. Influenced by works by Bonobo, Thom Yorke, SBTRKT, Tame Impala, Damon Albarn and Jessie Ware, RYAL create music embedded with stories and soundscapes.

Previous RYAL releases have lent comparisons to acts like Little Dragon and Portishead with accolades from publications such as The Line of Best Fit, Time Out New York, LadyGunn, PopDust, Atwood and more. The duo is actively writing and releasing music, coupling releases with visuals, videos, photo stories and more.
Their latest release “Suit Yourself” was co-written by Jacque Ryal and New York singer-songwriter Veronika Jokel, with the track acting as an ode to relationships that we all may have lost during the pandemic.
On the meaning behind “Suit Yourself,” RYAL state:
“We hope this song helps the passing of lost relationships as they float away. In lockdown, we all were forced to look at what was right in front of us – what is in it for you? What is in it for others? What are you getting out of it? Make decisions that give you the life you want. We hope this song shows those who lost relationships how brave they are.”
