RUIZ! Contemplates All Things Love in New Single ‘Love Is Blind’

Following on from the release of the previous single, ‘The Human Touch’, RUIZ! is back with another compelling and realistic take on love in ‘Love Is Blind’. 

RUIZ! is a multi-instrumentalist, lyricist, and artist based in Sheffield, UK and is best known for defying genre with every release. First starting out as a bass player in the band The Only Fruit, RUIZ! now performs as a solo act writing his own material and deep diving into a multitude of topics that are thought-provoking but with an added warmth. 

‘Love Is Blind’ is an observational track that pulls into question modern relationships and whether or not they are built to last. With such a heavy subject matter RUIZ! interestingly explores this using a mesmerising soundscape, blending rhythmic drumbeats, hypnotic synths and melodic keys that creates a groove that allows its listeners to dance through heartache.

RUIZ! shows off his lyricism throughout, behind the upbeat instrumentals are hard-hitting lyrics, that create the perfect juxtaposition. Diving into a whirlwind of emotions,  from euphoria, denial, realisation and then acceptance is best shown through the lyrics “Why do we do this? Why can’t we be strong?”. All tied together through RUIZ!’s sprechgesang vocal style, deep and almost monotone it creates a matter-of-fact and observational take reminiscent of New Order

RUIZ! has created a truly compelling track with ‘Love Is Blind.’
