Decibels – Ruza
Meet Decibels. A posse of Midland (UK) boys who are going to be featuring on your party warm up / running / having a strut in the bathroom playlists. They’d be a great opener for the likes of Delphic, Friendly Fires, Foals…
It’s the vocal hook of Ruza, that had me at first listen; Stuart Bruce’s voice (note the 2 first name thing….he must be cool) hitting the same note 5 times before dropping into the rest of the chorus. The repetition works like a charm. So does the percussion.
They met in the woods at a rave a couple of years ago, and that makes me like them even more. If you fancy checking out the single launch party in London on Friday night, click here.
