Ruby Nightingale has an unforgettable voice — hypnotic and warm, articulate as it unravels into long, clear tones of gently wavering vibrato...Going forward, technology will play an important role in how Nightingale's music evolves... Using a loop pedal, Nightingale improvised contrapuntal lines...They moved largely in parallel motion, enveloping the room, their presence almost physical.
Though the track’s heart is based around Nightingale’s gently plucked guitar and operatic vocals... the ambient swirls that color the track give it a stunning depth. The sweeping noises in the background allow other instruments to dart into the song, retreating just as quickly as they came, enabling Nightingale to create a haunting world that’s all her own.
Very evident in this new single are her infectious harmonies, vibrant instrumentation, and heart string-tugging lyricism that all bring to us a feeling of serenity and nostalgia for home or places that resemble similar memories.
