"Rubies" by Qurious is now available for your listening pleasure!
"Rubies", the first single from "Void Vanishing" by Qurious is now available for your listening pleasure.
"Breaking the rules is where things get interesting with pop music. Franz Ferdinand’s ‘Take Me Out’ actrually slows down for the main part of the song. Sonic Youth releasing ‘The Diamond Sea’ the twenty minute closing track as the single off Washing Machine. Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody.’
Here -and this is a single- it’s not only the fact that it’s the first single but it’s the track itself. ‘Rubies’ the track fades in to an ambient opening, before the vocals come in on a completely different song. And two minutes twenty two seconds in it stops and goes in a different take before coming back to the main theme. But like the aforementioned song, though it sounds nothing like them, it’s a great pop tune. And although I get a number of submissions in my inbox every day, I suddenly realise I’m playing this for the fourth time in a row…It reminds me of Brian Eno in parts, Boards Of Canada in others, and Dubstar vocalist Sarah Blackwood in others. The tags for the Soundcloud read ‘Drone’ ‘Hip-Hop’ ‘Shoegaze’ and ‘Electronic.’ Very accurate." - 17 Seconds
"“Rubies” arrives so lush, so swollen with hypnotic synths and dream-like textures, that it’s nearly impossible to imagine the duo abandoning the spacey ambiance of their atmospheric soundscapes in favor of something more dim and murky. Which is just fine by me. I certainly like a certain level of black and bleak in my music, but Qurious manages to conjure verdant grooves with just the right amount of mystery and hallucinogenic abstraction. It’s cerebral and cinematic music that takes it’s time to settle in, but when it does, the rewards are plentiful." - Latest Disgrace
