With their latest single released TODAY, we thought it would be a good oppertunity to catch up with Ruby Hive, about their latest single You Mix…
For those who haven’t heard of you, how would you describe yourself?
We are Ruby Hive – a quirky indie pop band based in London. We make the kind of music you would hear in the opening scene of a movie, where the main character is very very very late but still chooses to stop briefly to shoot finger guns at themselves in the bathroom mirror.
Where did music start for you?
Ruby Hive started in 2017 as a reaction to the melancholy we all saw in London’s indie scene. We signed up to our local open mic night as a one off thing but we had so much fun playing that we have not stopped ever since.
You recently released your first track You Mix. Is this a hint at more new music on the way?
Yes, new music is on the horizon;)
Who produced your latest music? Have you worked with them before? How was it working with them?
Our music is organic, fair-trade and locally produced… or no haha, it is not really produced, but our dear friend Douglas Drvota is our mixing engineer and Ted Swords our mastering engineer. We could not be happier about the finished tracks and the friendships that have grown from working together.
Where does the inspiration for your music come from?
We are inspired by everyday life, big stories that play out before us or just a little quote in the magazine. It’s everything in between Swedish indie acts like Håkan Hellström, to Disney Channel intros. We listen a lot to a band called Lake Street Dive at the moment and an up and coming artist called Sammy Rae and the friends, they are brilliant!
Can we expect any music videos on the way?
Yes! Don’t even blink.
Any plans to play any festivals or gigs this year?
Lotsa plans, nothing announced yet – but if you are in Sweden this summer, we are coming for you!
Where can we find out more about you?
You can find us on:
Or @ any Wetherspoons, table 12.
Anything you would like to tell us?
Be kind, stay creative and always paint outside the lines – also, we have a few London shows this spring – so come rock your socks off!
We would like to thank Ruby Hive for taking the time to answer our questions and wish them all the best for this year!
