THE RUIINS are excited to announce the release of their debut EP Nobody, due out 13th of April. This follows the release of two singles from the EP, 'Love Can Start A War', and the title track 'Nobody' which was released on the 30th of March and is already pricking the ears of listeners.
The unique two-piece from the Mid North Coast of NSW have been playing and writing for the past two years making aname for themselves within Australia's musice scene allowing them to grace the stages of Falls Festival, Grow Your Own and Caloundra Music Festival in 2017.
"Nobody has been a long time coming," says guitarist Pat Sugden. "We've been working on this release for nearly two years, and we finally have it at a point where we're super proud of the songs that are on there."
THE RUIINS take you on a listening journey, opening the EP with an explosive instrumental the encapsulates the diversity that THE RUIINS are able to achieve. The following track 'Drowning' is fast-paced from start to finish, which leads into 'Love Can Start a War'; a melodic driven foot stomper that feels so familiar. The diversity of THE RUIINS is shown entirely throughout this EP; ending with the title track 'Nobdoy' building its intensity from start to finish with subtle yet powerful changes. Notably, THE RUIINS most most dynamic track will leave you wanting more.
Nobody was recorded in various locations with help from Govinda Doyle (Angus & Julia Stone), Alex Henriksson (Matt Corby) and Jared Adlam. One notable location was in the boy's local area in an off-grid self-sustainable house which added to the personal value of the EP. "The fact that we got to work on the songs in our hometown and record it in a mate's house made the whole process a lot more meaningful and gives it more sentimental value," says vocalist and drummer Adam Dooker.
THE RUIINS will be hitting the road to celebrate the release of the Nobody EP with their first international headline shows in Bali starting on the 13th of April, followed by a national tour in June (dates tbc).
