Week Ender – Ruth Lyon

The Midweekly is our column from Mike Jeffers; lead singer of Chicago punk stalwarts SCRAMmusic junkie and all around righteous dude.

This week we send you into your Saturday / Sunday with an indie/art pop gem from Newcastle artist Ruth Lyon. “Clown” grabs you from the jump with a steady and simple drum part, a tasty minimalist bass line and their rich vocals. Piano enters the mix at the first chorus to flesh things out, but it’s still a song that lets the open space keep you suspended in a special kind of groove. Shades of Regina Spektor here, but Lyon makes it their own with a vibe that is unique.
