Reuben and the Dark have shared a new single titled “YES”, which came from a desire to put something positive into the world. “I thought I would be writing more songs about despair…,” says Reuben and the Dark frontman Reuben Bullock. “But we don’t need anymore hopelessness right now.”
The new single represents a departure both in sound and philosophy for Reuben, whose pastoral highway rock balladry has earned comparisons to Mumford and Sons and The War On Drugs, and found homes in an array of TV/Film including the Breaking Bad Movie, Grey’s Anatomy, and more. The affirmative vibe of the song floats on a bed of spacious melody, matching the emotional heights of Reuben’s folk-rock epics but balanced by alt-pop sensibilities and triumphant call-and-response vocals.
Reuben and the Dark is the spirited folk-rock outfit led by Canadian singer-songwriter Reuben Bullock, whose music blends introspective lyrics with soaring instrumentals. Anyone who has seen Reuben and the Dark perform knows that the bandmates share a palpable bond onstage, creating a heedless energy that reverberates with the audience. Now perhaps more than ever, even though they can’t perform for live audiences, the band hopes their music can bring a feeling of togetherness to fans.
