Ruby My Dear is a delightfully quirky Disney nightmare, coming into life by means of surprisingly violent post-breakcore and a touch of EDM, releasing a new EP called Altaïr on November 15 through Love Love Records. Being the aesthetical successor of last year’s full-length Brame, the five tracks pack a very intense punch, hitting lower and deeper this time. Continuing the familiar trait where each release connect’s to each other on an emotional level but has their own, wildly different tones and colours, Altaïr will either draw you closer to the soothing vortical lunacy or push you further away from it.
There is something very hypnotizing in Ruby My Dear‘s output – mainly how all the pieces click seamlessly with each other, and how perfectly balanced and coherent the glitch-ridden patchwork manages to be. Altaïr delves into its own corners when compared to the other releases, and succeeds in being the entrée sized portion of absurdity it’s supposed to be. It most likely won’t offer any grandiose experiences or surprises if you know what you’re getting into, but the trippingly punishing atmosphere will make you chuckle uncontrollably, in a good way. Smooth experimentalism shakes hands with colourful imagination and weirdly shaped contrivances on a level that’s only achievable through praxis, and that in itself makes these twenty minutes worth a listen.
