Ruthie Foster Announces New Album Healing Time Out November 18th & New Single “Soul Searching” Out Now
When speaking about “Soul Searching,” Ruthie shares: “Writing this one with Gary Nicholson took me back to what it might feel like to write a classic soul song about a relationship and if it should end permanently. We were looking for something that talks about being caught inside the shift and the realization that while it worked in the beginning, it’s now changed and you’re wondering if you’re both able or even willing to take that trip together or not.”

“‘Waste of Time’ is almost like a follow up or companion song to the last single, ‘Doubt,’ says vocalist/guitarist Josh Goldman. “It kind of continues with this theme of questioning yourself and how you deal with failing yourself and others. The lyrics also kind of explore not beating yourself up too hard about your perceived shortcomings because a lot of that shit is out of your control anyways.”
QUARRY — Releases new album: ‘Positioning The Sun’ Today || Watch Video for “Beyond Any Sense”
The group released their first-ever music ever last month in the form of a Zane Lowe-premiered single, “just a little bit”. Zane had this to say about the track: “the first time I heard this, I was like… I need this. I need this now”….“so gassed on this trio.. they are gonna just blow” …“a modern day hippy-potamus vibe to it.” Both “interlock” and “just a little bit” are attempts by the band to bring attention to the prevalent addiction, psychosis, and technology burnout found at alarming rates among today’s youth, conditions that have been greatly exacerbated by the global pandemic. Beyond the laid-back, feel-good overtones of the music, the band hopes to find resonance with those who have been alienated by their modern lifestyles, ultimately helping them rekindle a sense of connection and hope.

In many ways, “We Go Out” is a love letter to dance music culture. “We go out dancing together, we gotta rave all night,” the anthemic chorus goes. The irresistible banger operates as both a boisterous throwback and a bold look forward, infusing tried-and-true elements of clubland with new tones and textures, and off-kilter time signatures.
