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.

The Best Of The Fests: Stereoboard's Summer Festival Guide
Thu 23 May 2019
td#right {display:none !important;} SUMMER. IS. FINALLY. HERE. Festival season is now upon us: the bumbags have been fished from the back of the wardrobe, the wellies have been scrubbed clean of two year’s worth of forgotten Glastonbury mud and you’ve stocked up on various colours of glitter from the craft shop. You discerning music fanatics now have an important choice to make: “Which festivals should you go to?” Stereoboard know your pain. Every year we’re faced with the same dilemma, and with the UK festival scene growing faster than you can count your ever-growing collection of wristbands, it’s never been harder to decide. If only there were some sort of guide to help you through… Here we are then. The best of the fests, organised by where you might be in the country. Because you’re never too far from a weekend of music and merriment. Let’s get started then, shall we?
