Reigniting the rock-ballad, driving love-song format & feel of a simpler era, By Small Ruin are masters of the craft when it comes to songwriting.
Emerging complete with a stunning visual story, and vocals that make fine use of contrast between delicacy and absolute passion, Some People is a powerful indie rock anthem, with a decidedly poignant subject matter.
The subtle quirk of that off-kilter twang, the marching rhythm, the contemporary references, the rise and fall dynamic of the verse lines – everything plays its part and resolves in a brilliantly comforting way
Always an act worth taking a moment out of your day to turn up the volume for, By Small Ruin kick back into gear with a gorgeously melodic, classic pop-rock ode to the inevitable power of love.
There’s light at the end of the tunnel, and this song, when played at volume, helps really bring that message home.
What a voice. The funk-inspired energy of the track suits the soulful & stylish sound of the artist’s voice superbly.
