There’s a lot of of electro/synth stuff going on right now, so it’s always refreshing when I hear some alternative-rock that I love. “Ruby” from the Los Angeles-based band, StrangeFaces, is a throwback to my emo days back in jr. high and I’m all here for it. With opening lyrics “I thought I’d let you know / My thoughts are darker than the room sometimes / I’ve broken my brittle bones / and pieced them back almost a million times”, I already knew that this was my song to listen to.
It’s always great when we, as humans, can connect through hurt… it feels good to heal with other people, and I think that “Ruby” is one of those songs that does it very well. Listening to this song is like going to Emo Nite LA, haha!
