rurie – “idle & idolatry”


“idle & idolatry” is a consuming track from rurie, hypnotizing with lush synth swells and creeping vocal momentum. A mysterious dream-pop soundscape enamors with its patiently unfolding charm, as bouts of vocal escalation invigorate. “Now that my house is on fire, I’ve made my bed and I’m tired,” rurie lets out during one particularly magnetic rise, accompanied by a more prominent percussive pulse. From this gripping refrain to the hazy guitar strums within the conclusion, “idle & idolatry” maintains a compelling character throughout.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
