Ruby Red’s Funky New Single “Overflow” Portrays The Story Of Missed Connections
Indie-pop duo Ruby Red just released their funky new single, “Overflow,” which combines Fernando Fine’s vocals and an infectious, yet hypnotic, drum pattern played by Daniel Laner. These elements create a futuristic sound that transports the listener to another time far in the future.
Listen to “Overflow” here.
Ruby Red has a unique approach to their music, as Laner states,
“Ruby Red is not a traditional band with ‘roles,’ but rather a medium that Fernando and I can both use to tell our story.”
This creative approach influenced “Overflow,” as it is actually based on Fine’s story, and the fact that it’s his vocal debut lends more depth to the song, since he is telling his own story. As Laner states,
“We built the song around the concept of playing the complete and utter (but self aware) love fool. As we dove deeper into the concept, we started to uncover what Fernando’s subconscious was saying to him at the time: it was his letter to a missed connection.”
Ruby Red also dropped a new music video for “Overflow” this past week, which you can watch here:
In more recent news, Ruby Red was announced as openers on Emmit Fenn’s Far From Here Pt. 2 tour, which starts May 14th in San Diego, California and finishes in Denver, Colorado on May 27th. For more information on the tour, visit Emmit Fenn’s official website.
