Ruby Fray – “Photograph”

By Peter Helman / August 13, 2014

A month ago, we premiered “Barbara,” the lead single off of Emily Beanblossom’s sophomore LP as Ruby Fray, Grackle (which sounds like something that a witch would brew in a cauldron, but is actually a kind of bird native to Texas, Beanblossom’s new home after relocating from Washington). “Photograph” is another intoxicating bit of darkly mystical-sounding rock — on her Bandcamp, Beanblossom describes her sound as “psychedelic witch wave,” and while that doesn’t really sound like a real thing, it actually fits pretty well. And it’s good! Listen below.

Grackle is out 9/30 via K.
