Emma Ruth Rundle Offers Further Insight Into New LP 'On Dark Horses' With Single Darkhorse

Emma Ruth Rundle has released the second single from her new album.

‘Dark Horses’ was engineered and produced by Kevin Ratterman at LA LA LAND in Louisville, Kentucky this spring. The follow up to her 2016 LP ‘Marked for Death’ and 2017 EP ‘The Time Between Us’ is due out on September 14 through Sargent House. The Los Angeles-based musician said:

“The record is about overcoming—understanding and embracing the crippling situation and then growing beyond it. Horses keep working their way into the lyrics and visual dimension of this record. They’re powerful and beautiful yet not free really. So the dark horse works for me in a visual way, as a representation of a contained force that will win the race or exceed the expectation of society and self.”

Head below to listen to Darkhorse, which is the album’s focal point. It takes us down a more sombre path than its predecessor, Fever Dreams, though there is a streak of optimism running through the track. “In the wake of weak beginnings, we can still stand high,” she sings.

Photo: Natalie Bisignano Few bands have enjoyed a career as varied and colourful as Hopesfall's. Forming 20 years ago in North Carolina, they emerged just as metalcore and other forms of moody hard rock were beginning to take off. However, they aren't remembered for their contributions to the scene as much as how they subverted its tropes. Drawing from screamo and psychedelic space rock in equal measures, their releases 'No Wings to Speak Of' and 'The Satellite Years' to this day stand up as classics of the genre.

Fri 10 Aug 2018
Photo: Paola Baltazar​ Much like prog before it, math-rock hasn't always appeared the most accessible of genres. As a form, it's designed to keep listeners on their toes, directing and misdirecting with syncopated rhythms, jagged melodic progressions and non-standard time signatures. That might not seem like a recipe for commercial success, but if there's one thing Brits can get behind it's art that's awkward, intelligent and self aware.

It’s easy to question the authenticity of any young musician who stirs up a super-sized buzz. Are they merely a record company’s latest marionette? Yet another superficial media darling destined for 15 minutes of fame? Dan Owen certainly generated significant plaudits before his debut album, ‘Stay Awake With Me’, had even been released, but the finished product revealed a special singer-songwriter who, after years of grafting for his shot at the big time, is being lauded for all the right reasons.

There’d be no record companies or publications trying to shape our tastes. Image would be unimportant. Sales irrelevant. Radio airplay redundant. The only thing that would matter would be the creativity of the musician and how they reflect themselves through their art.
