Blue Ruth

This is an archive item from Supersonic 2022

Through a distorted cacophony of sound, Blue Ruth presents part-fiction, part-abstract stories, scribbled down from a morbid vision of their Birmingham hometown.   


Utilising second-hand hardware, Blue Ruth’s musical ingenuity pulls from their background of performing in guitar-heavy bands Youth Man and Pretty Grim. Dropping the guitars for layers, upon layers of distortion pedals stacked on cheap keyboards, their striking debut output ‘Mausoleum’ oozes an utterly human sound.  


At it’s core, this is noisy, synth led, electronic, industrial music, where glitchy club beats and semi-improvised melodies transport us to a dystopian party that never ends.
