Folk-rock outfit, Reuben and the Dark have unveiled the new single, “YES” which came from a desire to put something positive into the world.
“I thought I would be writing more songs about despair…,” says Reuben and the Dark frontman Reuben Bullock, “but we don’t need anymore hopelessness right now.”
The new single represents a departure both in sound and philosophy for Reuben, whose pastoral highway rock balladry has earned comparisons to Mumford and Sons and The War On Drugs, and found homes in an array of TV/Film including the Breaking Bad Movie, Grey’s Anatomy, and more. The affirmative vibe of the song floats on a bed of spacious melody, matching the emotional heights of Reuben’s folk-rock epics but balanced by alt-pop sensibilities and triumphant call-and-response vocals.
