ella ruby - "baths"
ella ruby is a Seattle-based singer/songwriter with indie folk influences, who has just released “baths,” an eloquent depiction of the fragility of her own body.
Amidst ella ruby’s soft vocals that gently guide you through “baths,” there is an abundance of intricate details that emerge at every turn, keeping you hooked on her words. The colorfully descriptive lyrics float in perfect harmony with the cinematic, sweeping instrumentals (ex: think Juno).
“an exploration into my coming to terms with the magnificent fragility of my own body: a deep-seated and unabashedly naive longing for a return to comfort in myself and in relationship with others.”
While at first listen this may appear to be rather specific and personal, when delving further, it’s actually insanely relatable and mindblowing that ella ruby has somehow put this experience into such brilliantly illustrative words. She explains that it’s about “the comforting and convoluted notion that we all exist alongside all the past and future versions of ourselves.” This is extremely profound, and such a thought-provoking, introspective piece of art.
ella ruby is without a doubt an emerging artist that you need to know. We’re going to have “baths” on repeat in anticipation of her upcoming debut EP, baby blue. Make sure to follow her at the links below so you don’t miss out!
