Reliably informed

This new track from Ruth Lyon is unexpectedly dark, enriched in powerful emotions and masked in a ghostly tone. Her beautifully haunting vocals enhance the storyline, using the metaphor of a Black Hole, which explores themes of mental health and responsibilities unto others.

These emotions are openly vulnerable and on show on the stripped-back solo track. The layers of harmony in the piece shape it as one with depth to its melancholy soundscape. Well produced, this sounds like it’s going straight to the charts, with an Adele-esque vibe.

Audiences would do well to catch Ruth’s rescheduled show at Cluny 2, now taking place on the Saturday 29th October; an intimate venue which perfectly suits this track’s spooky, haunting vibe.
