The Rubens – ‘Hallelujah’

The Rubens have finally unleashed their new track Hallelujah, and no, it’s not another Leonard Cohen cover.

After premiering the song on triple j yesterday, the band have shared the new rocker with the world in the form of an uplifting music video featuring a dancing homeless man.

Hallelujah is the first taste of The Rubens’ forthcoming album, Hoops, which will be released on Friday, 7th August. Lead vocalist Sam Margin says the song had humble beginnings, but came to evoke something quite complicated.

Hallelujah started out with programming a beat, putting it on loop and riffing on it until something decent came out of it,” Margin says. “The song itself is about people trying to force their religious beliefs or ideas upon you, and in the process destroying what it is they’re plugging.”

As for the song’s energy, Margin says Hoops is all about good live vibes. “We put more of a focus on how the songs would work in a live setting for this album. We wanted to write songs that would be fun for us to play live as well as fun for our audience to listen and move to.”

The Rubens play at Splendour In The Grass this July.
