Chatterbox: The Ruby Suns

Hey, tell us a bit about yourself.

I’m a Kiwi-American dad living in Oslo, Norway. I’ve been making records for a while and just released a new one, Sprite Fountain in June.

Where did the new single come from?

‘Pram Gang’ came from being a bit perplexed at what was to be my new life (being a dad and living in Norway) before my kid was born and it’s also a little anecdotal. I was jogging one snowy winter in Oslo on a cleared footpath. As I approached three pram wielding new parents stretched lengthways across the footpath, filling it completely, I made eye contact with them assuming they’d make a little room for me pass. Instead they held their ground and I was forced into the uncleared shoulder with fresh snow deep to the knees. I was fascinated by this incident. Where’s the line drawn between convenience and the consideration of others?

Is there more content in the pipeline?

I’m always working on something. I’ve got another video coming out a little later in the year and a little covers ep thing that I’ve been tinkering with. I’m touring around Europe in September solo which is new to me so I’ve been working on a new live set for that, attempting to increase my ambidexterity.

What’s on the horizon for you?

Other than what I’ve mentioned, hopefully get back to NZ for some shows and some summer.
