The Chris Ruben Band are back to reviving the dynamism of blues and psychedelic rock of the 70s. Phasing into a spectacular contemporariness, their soundscapes present unique and novel interpretations of the genre. The band’s latest single is ‘Money’ a passionate and dazing composition that explores the pervasive desire for money that we humans are unable to shake. The protagonist is seemingly in a love-hate relationship with money, that is powered by its necessity and tempered by its evasiveness. It is alt rock at its most creative with fuzzy riffs scattering and pouring over the rising basslines. And the vocals are an energy source that follow the texture and emotion to further enhance the atmosphere. 

The ideas are layered and complex but are presented with an elegance that instantly speaks to their virtuoso. There are definite indie and melodic rock frames as well, reminiscent of the 90s. If The Smiths’ dreamy quotients were blended with effervescent ideas of Jimi Hendrix and the explorative dimensions of Tame Impala, then it would sound like The Chris Ruben Band. Listen Now! 

The track is available for streaming on popular sites like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
