In 2014, New York duo Courtship Ritual released Pith, one of the most concise and perfectly poised dream pop albums released in recent years. Elemental, yet spare and intimate, it's mixture of close vocals, warm (and throbbing) bass lines, programmed drums and spacey textures made for a practically perfect expression of the potential, passion and pain of summertime in the big apple.

Since then, Courtship Ritual have released the odd single, and individually collaborated with different members of Godmode America, the US artist collective they're closely associated with. Last week, as part of Godmode's never-ending FACULTY series, they dropped a new single titled '28' partnered up with a video edited and directed by Courtship Ritual vocalist Monica Salazar.

Set against a thumping percussion-tinged beat loop, blaring rock guitar, psychedelic textures and a series of half-sung, half-spoken refrains delivered by Monica, the vintage-style video depicts a winged woman emerging from an infernal machine, before delicately flapping her way through a variety of settings and scenes. Stylish and memorable, '28' serves as yet another reason to get familiar with Courtship Ritual's understated talent.
