The Chris Ruben Band – “MONEY”


“MONEY” is a melodic rock showing from The Chris Ruben Band, a six-piece from Long Island, New York. The track serves as the second single from their upcoming album An Incredible Forever, releasing this summer. An approachable, replay-inducing sound with anthemic appeal lingers throughout, readying for a groundswell of anticipation surrounding An Incredible Forever.

“MONEY” wastes no time in getting going. An immediate blast of guitars drives into an anticipatory vocal declaration: “It’s killing me waiting here on you.” The bumping bass additions complement with further enjoyment, ascending seamlessly into the “how did I get here?” introspection. Shades of Oasis show in the ensuing central chorus, showing ample vigor into the “world is changing,” affirmation. “MONEY” is a contagious rock success from The Chris Ruben Band.

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

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
