New discovery: Ruby Empress - Deluca

As well as being cardboard cut-outs with a dubious taste in Bono Hats, Ruby Empress are a Swedish indie band with shades of Tame Impala in their laid-back, summery pop. They release their debut single, Deluca, this week and it has one of the most delightfully demented origin stories of all time.

"Deluca was meant to be about a relationship," says singer Tom Serner. "In hindsight, it turned out as a song about struggling with the Scandinavian weather."


Not much is known about the band so far; and their social media posts are all cryptic nonsense about colours and seasons. See, for example, this YouTube soundpoem effort.

Let's see how this one develops.
