ONE TO WATCH: Ruby Gill’s New Video For ‘Fault (Lost In Japan)’.

Following her Cape Town tour with Not Those Girls events, Ruby has released her music video for her single, Fault (Missing In Japan). The video features a couple running through a forest, starting back to back and then running away from each other.

‘It’s a little bit about running away from what’s bad, and a little bit about running towards what is good.’

‘A short-sighted, short-heighted musician currently reading a book about birds and listening to a lot of Leo Stannard.’ The simple opening sentence Ruby Gill describes herself with is spot on- it’s simple, but it says a lot. It leaves much to the imagination. Much like the melancholic music Ruby is fast gaining recognition for.

Ruby was dropped off at piano lessons when she was 4. “By the time I was 14 I had enough songs about windmills and boys to make a little demo album in a garage in Pietermaritzburg, so I did.”

Ruby’s played at Oppi Koppi, Splashy Fen, Lush, Smoking Dragon and more, making her one to watch this summer festival season.

Described by as Florence Welch (of Florence + The Machine) and Tori Amos, don’t let that mislead you though, Ruby’s carving her own brand of a multi-faceted songstress with haunting vocals and lyrics that linger long after the show is done.
