As they hit the highways of North America in support of Grouplove, Aussie crew The Rubens have demonstrated to our American brothers and sisters just what they’re capable of – The Rubens have released a self-shot mash-up featuring their hit My Gun with Grouplove’s latest Ways To Go.
Shot in what looks like the band’s North American tour accommodation, the clip was shot by vocalist Sam Margin. The Rubens noticed similarities between their own hit and Ways To Go, which is set to feature on Grouplove’s upcoming Spreading Rumours LP.
The Rubens have already managed to build some serious buzz over the pond after their demos pricked up the ears of Grammy Award-winning producer David Kahne (Paul McCartney, the Strokes, Regina Spektor), who invited the boys round to record their self-titled debut.
The album has since hit Gold status Down Under, and all signs seem to suggest a similar response from the US market. The Rubens will be appearing at Falls Festival over New Year’s, and Grouplove are headed Down Under to hit Big Day Out’s new Love Stage in 2014.
