Emma Ruth Rundle - Return

Emma Ruth Rundle have released a new single and a video "Return" from her forthcoming album "Engine Of Hell".

Rundle has always been a multifaceted musician, equally capable of dreamy abstraction (as heard on her album Electric Guitar: One), maximalist textural explorations (see her work in Marriages, Red Sparowes, Nocturnes or collaborations with Chelsea Wolfe and THOU), and the classic singer-songwriter tradition (exemplified by Some Heavy Ocean). But on "Engine Of Hell", Rundle has opted to forego the full-band arrangements of her previous albums in favor of the austerity of a lone piano or guitar and her voice, which creates a kind of intimacy, as if we’re sitting beside Rundle on a bench, or perhaps even playing the songs ourselves. It’s an extremely up-close and personal confessional with a focus on the rich subtleties and timbre of Rundle’s graceful performances.

Emma Ruth Rundle says:“For me this album is the end of an era to the end of a decade of making records. Things DO have to change and have changed for me since I finished recording it.” In essence, "Engine Of Hell" signifies a major turning point for Rundle as both an artist and as a person. The catharsis of this type of songwriting has effectively served its purpose, and to continue ruminating on the past going forward is less of a healing process and more like picking at a scab and refusing to let it heal. This may help explain why Rundle is less than enthusiastic about divulging the details about her muses, but it doesn’t alter the fact that these songs served a purpose in their creation, and that they may continue to bring comfort to others.

Enjoy today's tune "Return" from the upcoming album "Engine Of Hell", out 11/05 on Sargent House Pre-Order / Download / Stream: The video featuring Angel / Death - Emma Ruth Rundle, Angel / Death Double - Sarah Ray Rundle and Dove - Gaige (handled with love and care by Bright Eyes Doves).
