Biography

For nearing a decade, Sydney 5 piece Richard In Your Mind have created a kaleidoscope of Psych-Pop, made manifest in their recent 4th album – the critically acclaimed, meticulously crafted, joyous and bizarre ‘Ponderosa’. From sitars to synthezizers, ‘Ponderosa’ sees RIYM traverse a sonic landscape as comfortable in the world of modern hip hop and electronica as it is neo-psychedelia. Drawing on a vast catalogue (6 releases in total) and utilizing a range of instruments (from acoustic guitars and sitars to samples and synthesizers) to reproduce the full spectrum of their recorded work married with creative re-imaginings of it, RIYM’s live show features both lush arrangements of pure pop moments and bombast psych outs, punctuated by a super fun and often shambolic stage show featuring elaborate decorations and props. RIYM’s live credits include International supports for Ariel Pink, Cibo Matto, Os Mutantes and Warpaint plus beloved locals You Am I and Cloud Control and festival appearances including Big Day Out, Falls Festival, Peats Ridge, Secret Garden and many more.
