My Current Obsession: The Rubens - My Gun


Yeah, I know this isn't the kind of shit I usually post but I've been playing "My Gun" on repeat since hearing it on the radio - so, hopefully, one of you might like it. The Rubens hail from Menangle in Sydney's South West, which makes them my second favourite thing to come from the greater Campbelltown area. Sam Margin and his buddies broke through last year with JJJ staple "Lay It Down" and have slowly been building their profile with an endless stream of gigs around the country. It's paid off. "My Gun" is shooting up iTunes and is already making major inroads on radio. There's just something hypnotising about this soulful jam. I love Sam's emotive voice and feel every word he sings. The video (below) is a little undercooked but I've seen a lot worse. Is it just me or does this sound like it should be on the Pulp Fiction soundtrack? Anyway, I now officially stan for this band now and will see you at their next Sydney gig.
