Crank this tune by The Ruby Suns and I’m quite sure you’ll have some fun. It’s an aural attack — the kind of attack that conquers glorious new territory in your ear canal. The Ruby Suns are led by Ryan McPhun, who has been in twee-pop outfit The Brunettes and The Tokey Tones. The band resides in New Zealand though McPhun is a California transplant. There is California sunshine, tropical synth beats and African rhythms. There’s a ton more ingredients in there, but I’m still sorting through them. I think you’ll enjoy doing so.
If you’re snowed in or feeling chilly, this is a great way to warm up. If you’re already toasty, embrace The Ruby Sunshine!
