Aussie DJ Ruby Rose has been making waves on the local music scene for quite some time now, first through her role as an MTV VJ, then through her DJing career, but she’s never really ventured into headliner territory before… until now.
Teaming up with British singer songwriter Gary Go and Stuart Crichton, Ruby released ‘Guilty Pleasure’ on Friday. In preparedness for the song’s release, she revealed in a statement about how the song came to be.
“We didn’t write the lyrics down, we literally spoke to the beat of the song, to-ing and froing verbally but then both Gary and I just kind of stood up and sang our bits on a bit of a whim,” she said. “I remember my real vibe for the song, what was resonating within me was the idea of a destructive relationship. It felt befitting at the time because I was still embracing my sobriety and felt like potentially that was my most unhealthy relationship. For me, I felt I was slowly killing the real me, the happy, healthy, free, person, by making bad choices. This song is to remind you that though things can be a struggle we do all have choices.”
The clip, below, was filmed in London and sees both Ruby and Gary traversing the streets on their tandem adventure.
Quite liking this track, but there needs to be much more support from local radio for it to stand a chance of making it into the charts.
