Raleigh Ritchie makes it better with ‘You Make It Worse’ track

New song is lifted from the ‘Cuckoo’ EP.

Raleigh Ritchie’s going ‘Cuckoo’ with a new EP. Last month, the Bristol newcomer aired the EP’s title-track featuring Little Simz - now he’s sharing the cutting standout, ‘You Make It Worse’.

A far cry from the balladry of breakthrough ‘Stronger Than Ever’, this latest cut is a swarm of pitch-shifted vocals, jolting bass notes and an all-commanding cry of “get up”. It’s also the firmest sign yet that Ritchie’s struck gold on a sound that truly belongs.

This month, Raleigh Ritchie takes to a UK headline tour - dates above the player.
