Christina Rubino – “Down to the Sea”


This past December, Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Christina Rubino’s “Godspeed and Guns” showed an artist capable of eclectic stylistic appeal and contemplative, philosophical themes. The track explored the concept of Jung’s “shadow self”, over instrumentation that sported a central hook with snake-slithering mariachi flair and energizing brass. She has a full-length by the same name coming out on Valentine’s Day, and it’s preceded by yet another impressive track in “Down to the Sea”, a much more ballad-form effort led by piano, acoustics, and subtle backing strings. Rubino’s vocals remain empowering, though here shows a more restrained stylistic self, expressing the potentially eclectic content within Godspeed and Guns.
