By Small Ruin - All Is Well - Stereo Stickman

By Small Ruin All Is Well


If there’s anything that will get us through isolation with a smile, it’s great music. Amidst the influx of brand new, home-made recordings from this month, By Small Ruin stand tall with a beautifully uplifting and professionally crisp new single.

Kicking into gear with delicate nostalgia – organic guitar work, an accessible, smooth and emotive vocal lead – All Is Well progresses to envelop listeners in an energising chorus of optimism and positivity. There’s light at the end of the tunnel, and this song, when played at volume, helps really bring that message home.

Down but not defeated, we’re not through… I’m not staying seated, how about you?

A strong tumble of a drum, a light guitar riff, a marching rhythm and a vocal that evolves from softness to passion and power in a mighty fashion – All Is Well is a beauty. Utilising contrast to fine degree, quiet verses drive with fierce anticipation towards the ultimate boost of the hook.

What a catchy tune, really nicely done. A brilliantly colourful and bright new single, with a pop-rock core that delivers a warming promise for both the future of society, and the live-music opportunities that will, hopefully, once again grace our lives when the time is right.
