The Rubens On MFTV, Sydney 2012

Music Feeds TV caught up with Elliot and Sam from much-hyped Sydney outfit The Rubens.

On a massive high from playing a killer packed-out show at Splendour in the Grass 2012, The Rubens are keeping on the front foot, releasing the 2nd single off their forthcoming debut album My Gun on August 4. The Rubens explain the extraordinary journey that took them to New York to record their debut with super producer David Kahne (Paul Mcartney, The Strokes, Regina Spektor, Lana Del Ray).

On a dream run in a short career that has only spanned 18 months, The Rubens tell Music Feeds how they deal with the haters who are cynical that they have been living off the hype of Lay it Down. As Sam puts it “we are more than just Lay it Down“, with the album being dubbed a more thorough exploration of their sound, and delves into a range of different styles.

The Rubens national tour kicks off Thursday, September 13 (tickets on sale now) and their self-titled debut record is out on September 14 on Ivy League Records.
