Mating Ritual is an independent pop duo based in Los Angeles, California.
Previously known as Pacific Air, Ryan Marshall Lawhon founded Mating Ritual in 2014 when his brother Taylor decided to go back to school. Though initially a solo project, Mating Ritual became increasingly more collaborative leading up to the debut album, 2017’s How You Gonna Stop It? before joining forces again on sophomore album, Light Myself on Fire.
Written, produced and mixed by the brothers in their Mount Washington studio, the new record, Hot Content finds the brothers hitting their stride. Classic pop songwriting with modern recording techniques give the album a diverse, timeless feel. “Hot Content takes an internet joke and turns it in into an examination of relationships, internet culture and mental health” says Ryan, “It’s a very fun sounding record that isn’t afraid of tackling issues that are more or less, not fun.”
This fall the brothers will bring their energetic live performance to 21 cities across North America on their first headline run, following Hot Content’s album release show at famed Joshua Tree venue, Pappy and Harriet’s.
Hot Content is out now, via Smooth Jaws.
