Montreal based producer and musician RYAN Playground‘s new single “Pie In The Sky” is a rewarding three and a half minute ride. RYAN, otherwise known as Genevieve Ryan Martel, has a constant and alluring vocal presence on what is an oft-hectic recording. What opens with eerie quiet and looming distortion turns quickly to an expansive, uptempo piece of music. Lyrics detail the highs and lows of a roller coaster ride, production abounds, and a sense of nostalgia hangs above it all. At one point the track cuts clean and there is a neatly played phrase of piano and, with authority, she clears her throat. For a moment she is right there, we are all right there, “Eyes are closed for the way down.”
