As rubyrough began to put songs together for their sophomore album, CHAOS, they discovered that they had an "almost schizophrenic collection of songs." So they decided to feature each ‘personality’ by releasing similar songs together on separate EP’s. Consistent with their almost other-worldly style, they decided to name each EP after a mythical creature.
SIREN is the first EP in rubyrough's CHAOS collection.
Like its namesake, the songs are beautiful and dangerous, entwining intimate female vocals with delicate electronic artistry. The result: finespun art pop. Each track offers refreshing takes on both classic and less-typical themes. For example, the love song “Lunar” is a reverent and poetic description of modern society’s infatuation with technology. The delicate "Roy G Biv" paints a dream-like account of a misfit's efforts to find his place in the world. "Magnet" tells the story of an attraction too strong to escape. And "Thirst" is a haunting tale of seduction.
