New Music: Ella Ruby – Last Year

Ella Ruby is a singer songwriter based in Seattle, USA who I first discovered for the blog back in April through her delightfully unique and captivating track Baths. Now she’s back with another one that’s demands just as much attention. It’s called Last Year.

Last Year has a smooth, acoustic groove to it, creating a feeling that’s both upbeat and intimate. Lyrically, it’s as astute as Baths, speaking of offbeat seduction through an attention to detail and a fearless sense of confession.

Proudly queer, Ella released Last Year just in time for Pride Month, and I can’t think of a better way of celebrating it. You can give the track a listen below.
