Reuben and the Dark is the newest project from Calgary’s Reuben Bullock. Fresh off the release of his second solo album, Bullock has formed a band of some of Canada’s finest musicians. This quartet has been quickly building a reputation as a killer live band, their soaring four-part vocal hamonies achieving epic heights, always leaving crowds hungry for more. And at the core of all this sits Bullock’s songs, which manage to achieve a balance between seemingly disparate elements: the introspective with the anthemic, and the feat of sounding simutaneously ancient and uniquely contemporary. Recently brought to London by LUV LUV LUV Records (Florence and the Machine/Blood Orange), the band has returned from a European tour with a new release in tow. This is undeniably an artist poised for success, and every step of the journey is as exciting as witnessing what will come next.
