Ruby Randall – “The City”
“The City” is a swooning new track from Ruby Randall, highlighting the artist’s suave vocal presence and melodic songwriting. She’s at work on her second solo EP, with “The City” the first release from it, with a bit of a Fleetwood Mac vibe as the two-minute mark hits. “‘The City’ is about coming to terms with one’s discontentment in a city that sometimes feels impersonal,” Ruby, who’s just about to move out of Toronto, explains. “It’s also about living in a place that moves really quickly, and how easy it can be to keep yourself distracted. There is a line in The City that says “maybe you’re afraid that when it slows, it’ll get heavy,” which speaks to this fear of what will come up when we slow ourselves down.” This is a strongly melodic track from a release that looks promising.
