It’s refreshingly exciting to hear a new band with such stratospheric ambition as Gothenburg’s Ruby Empress. Opening track “Danseuses de Delphes” encapsulates their psychedelic disco vibrations perfectly, juxtaposing thick Tame Impala-esque synths with Nile Rogers guitar rhythms. Single “Strung Out” echoes the likes of Phoenix with its retro-modern production whilst “Lovelight – JV30” demonstrates a level of taste beyond their years.
Prepare to fall in love with this band!
