Melbourne’s Ruby Jones is excited to release her new single, ‘Feeling of Falling’ a rollicking track created in and inspired by the period of lockdown restrictions that impacted Melbournians in 2020 -21. ‘Feeling of Falling’ reimagines the Coronavirus as a contemptible lover who is only interested in the surface level beginnings of a fleeting romance. “I had to reconceptualize what I was going through at the time. I found the pandemic impossible to process or understand so in order to write about it I needed to reframe the experience into something that I could relate to. I write love songs of all natures, so this was my way of turning something so huge and so global into something that I could really speak to, a song about heartbreak. I thought about what I’d say to the virus if it was an antagonistic lover, I have more experience with those than I do with plagues” explains Jones. 
Music so relentlessly affecting could only be born of one thing: Ruby Jones’ willingness to take communion with the ghosts of her past. On ‘Feeling of Falling ’ Jones vocals are both as powerful as they are tender; she wraps a feeling of hopelessness in an upbeat skin which captures the feeling when someone is disastrously bad for you but you fall for them anyway. 
Having cut her teeth as a vocalist with Clairy Browne & The Bangin’ Rackettes, Jones draws upon what she learnt during this time in her solo project. Co-writer and lead guitarist, Jules Pascoe (Husky, Jazz Party, Jaala) adds a rich rich layer to Jone’s back catalogue of work and along with bassist, Joel Loukes (Riley Catherall) and drummer, Selwyn Cozens (Buttered Loaf), they produce a powerful psych-folk sound; juxtaposing an upbeat inquisitive song with a melancholic ache. Self-produced by the band courtesy of a ca.1970 Tascam 34B four-track tape machine, ‘Feeling of Falling’ was mixed and mastered by Matt Redlich (Holy Holy, Ainslie Wills, Husky)
To celebrate the release of ‘Feeling of Falling’ Ruby and her band are putting on an intimate show upstairs at the Gasometer Hotel in Collingwood on the 1st of March and will be joined by special guest ‘Nitida’. Tickets are available via https://www.thegasometerhotel.com.au/.
