Avant-pop quintet Ruby My Dear announces the release of their new video for “Dirt.” Rooted in experimental trip-hop with neo-jazz foundations, Ruby My Dear blends the atmospheric melodies of Daughter with the chamber-pop sensibilities and unconventional instrumentation of Adult Jazz. Fronted by vocalist Gabbi Coenen, Ruby My Dear draws inspiration from acts like Dirty Projectors, London Grammar, Portishead, and Hiatus Kaiyote.

Ruby My Dear was formed in 2012 when members Gabbi Coenen (vocals), Darren Denman (keys), Zack Hartmann (bass), Oscar Rodriguez (guitar) and Jay Rudolph (drums) met while studying at The New School for Jazz. The fivesome released their debut, self-titled EP in 2013, which earned critical acclaim throughout the blogosphere, leading The Equal Ground to say, “Ruby My Dear are impressive the moment you start listening to them. What’s more impressive than that however is that they are able to utilize these technical abilities…in a pop format that is catchy, while being experimental.”
