WA’s own Ruby Boots, who splits her time between Perth and Nashville these days, has presented her latest single It’s So Cruel, the first to be lifted from her upcoming sophomore LP entitled Don’t Talk About It, released early 2018.
Don’t Talk About It follows her award-winning debut record Solitude and see’s the folk writer head in a brave new direction incorporating elements of pop and indie rock into her already solidified Americana folk sound. The ten track album was produced and mixed by Beau Bedford and recorded with the band The Texas Gentleman.
Of the single, Ruby Boots’ Bex Chilcott says: “It’s about that moment — when you meet a person and it seems like destiny has smiled on you and sparks are flying. Except, they’ve somehow neglected to tell you about the ‘significant other’. Yeah, bummer. We all live and learn enough to see those red flags next time around.”
It’s So Cruel is out now. Ruby Boots’ second album Don’t Talk About It is out February 9.
