One of our Editor’s Picks this week is a show from Aussie band The Rubens who performed the track “My Gun” from a balcony in Los Angeles. We loved their performance so we've featured them as our Artist Spotlight of the week!
THE RUBENS are an Australian five-piece made up of Sam Margin on guitar and lead vocals, keyboardist and singer Elliott Margin, guitarist Zaac Margin, Scott Baldwin on drums and bass player Will Zeglis. The band is made up of three brothers, Sam, Elliot and Zaac Margin and formed in Menangle, Australia, just south of Sydney, when the boys were just kids.
Check out their official video for “Never Be The Same”:
Their self-titled debut album, which they recorded in New York City with producer DAVID KAHNE, who has worked with the likes of REGINA SPEKTOR, PAUL MCCARTNEY and THE STROKES, was released worldwide back in September. The group has already taken the world by a storm, sharing the stage with the likes of JACK WHITE, GROUPLOVE and BLOC PARTY.
