Emerging singer-songwriter Mike Ruby is back with his brand new single “Is Anyone There”, which you can stream exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
Starting out originally as a musical jam written in Los Angeles at Chris Hartz’s (of Childish Gambino) recording studio, where Nicky Paul (of St. Lucia), Chris Hartz and Mike Ruby were flirting with genres and styles elegantly juxtaposing the upbeat vibe of commercial pop and an electronic dystopia of light and dark. This juxtaposition led to the inspiration behind Mike’s lyrics, which led to a deeper insight into the general state of today’s social scene where everything is out there on social media, but more often, it really feels like there’s no one listening. The lyric, “is anyone there, I’m having trouble holding in these feelings, does anyone care, I think I’m about hit my ceiling” sums up the general notion eloquently.
