Discovery: Demons of Ruby Mae

Manchester indie pop act Demons of Ruby Mae go deep with a new release of Beneath The Surface.

By Graeme Smith

The track previously featured in the US TV drama Suits which starred, by happy coincidence, woman of the moment Meghan Markle. I’m sure that had nothing to do with the timing of the reissue, though. It’s happy timing anyway because it means Demons of Ruby Mae are now firmly on our radar.

Beneath The Surface is a slow-burner of a track. Adam Rowley’s vocals are stand out, holding the right amount of strength and gravitas and the layered keys and guitar backing create a hell of a lot of atmosphere.

A little reminiscent of fellow Mancs Oasis at their Stop Crying Your Heart Out end. Check out Beneath The Surface below.
