I don’t do many posts on new bands, mainly because they don’t share the emotion or warmth of acts from the sixties/seventies. However, Leicester’s rapidly rising group Demons of Ruby Mae are the exception.
Their stripped back approach of emotively played piano, guitar and drums lets the startling vocals of Jonny Gavin shine. Tied to an indie/folk/rock sensibility fans of Doves will particularly welcome these new arrivals to the music scene.
Rumour has it that Whispering Bob Harris is a fan and no wonder. They recently released the excellent Heliacal EP, but I won’t go into detail to review the music - just give them a listen and catch them on their summer tour before they become absolutely massive.
