Brookln and Ruth Decker are Rue Royale. Influenced by dark chocolate, lavender and the universe, the couple are now three albums into a six year recording career. Last year’s release Remedies Ahead was born of their continuing journey of discovery and chance. Where its title spoke of their resilience and hopes for the future, the music itself evolved even further from its more fey indie-folk-pop origins into something of far greater confidence and maturity. Imagine if Mark Kozelek was suddenly invited to join Fleetwood Mac and you can start to see the outline of the Rue Royale picture.
Seasoned travellers, Rue Royale have just announced that they will be going back out on the road in May of this year, supporting S. Carey, the Bon Iver drummer and collaborator on his UK tour. To celebrate this announcement, the band have unveiled the official music video for the Heart Island remix of ‘Pull Me Like A String’, taken from Remedies Ahead.
