This debut album is soaring, anthemic and pompous middle-of-the-road indie
Brighton quartet Rubylux’s unique selling point is not their music, which on the evidence of this debut album is soaring, anthemic and pompous middle-of-the-road indie. Rather, it is their tactic of bringing their message to the public via ‘street gigs’, which were known as guerrilla gigs back in the last decade. We really can’t imagine anything worse than hearing these songs disrupt a terrible afternoon at a dismal job. In the interests of balance, if you enjoy post-Coldplay adenoidal humourless crap, feel free to stare at that score until it turns into an eight or something in your empty head.
