Stream Ruby The RabbitFoot Divorce Party

Ruby The RabbitFoot usually makes minimal indie folk-pop, but she’s going in a new direction from her last two albums for a more pop-sculpted sound on her latest full-length, Divorce Party. Her emotive, immersive lyrics from her previously more minimal songs translate well surrounded by an eclectic array of more polished production borrowing from trap, electro, R&B, and even jazz. Her writing is what melds the project together as a cohesive body of work. Whether she’s infusing inanimate objects with palpable feeling on “Blue Jean Jacket” or “Wild Cherry Chapstick,” is incredibly vulnerable over the wrung-out hip-hop of opener “Beach Flowers,” or is incredibly blunt over the most poppy, catchy entry “I Hate You.” She unabashedly captures the full gamut of emotions that comes with moving past a soul-stirring love. Sometimes she gives in to those feelings, sometimes she overcomes, but she will surely make you feel them. And the ever-shifting aesthetics enveloping her voice mirror those morphing feelings and make her laments all the more evocative. Here’s what Ruby had to say about the album:

I want this to be a soundtrack for anyone going through a transition. Even though there’s this connotation of disruption and heartbreak, divorce parties have a celebratory energy. Every person that we love teaches us, so when it’s time to part ways I think it’s beautiful to appreciate everything we’ve gained from the experience. I wrote these songs in a period of separation from a love. I want to release them into the world as a celebration of all that I learned during that time. It’s my Divorce Party!

Listen.
