The Rubens

Platinum certified, award-winning Australian alt-rock quintet The Rubens release their critically acclaimed album Hoops in the UK on May 20th through Warner Bros. Records (pre-order on iTunes here).
 
Their debut UK album was recorded in New York City and produced by the Grammy Award winning David Kahne (Lana Del Rey, The Strokes) and mixed by legendary producer Michael Brauer (Coldplay).
 
Opening with the gloriously groove-laden ‘Hallelujah’, Hoops brims with an eclectic blend of rock, indie, soul, and even R&B. Organs ring out on the rock gospel of ‘Cut Me Loose’, meanwhile ‘Things About To Change’ growls with blues driven guitars and driving rhythms, while ballad ‘Switchblade’ finds the band at their most intimate.
 
Hoops entered Australia’s ARIA Album chart at No.2, topped the iTunes Alternative Chart and has since gone on to receive a Platinum certification for its 11-tracks of soulful blues swagger and feel-good indie-rock anthems.
