As we celebrate our 15th birthday this month, we’re continuing our tradition of giving you, dear Constant Readers, a very special gift in the form of our annual Compilation Albumavailable to download via our Bandcamp page for free!

Here, we focus on the track contributed by Ruth Patterson

On Somebody Else singer-songwriter Ruth Patterson finds herself “questioning authenticity in this weird world of pretend and performance”, and after a year of living through Zoom calls and social media this reflection on identity is a welcome one.

“We spend so much time trying to be somebody or something that it’s easy to lose track of who we really are,” she says. As this beautiful baroque pop-infused single goes on, it reveals its layers to further expose the meaning amongst the imagery, leaving us with a sometimes surreal but always heartfelt message.
