“Dark” singer-songwriter is a term which deserves an official registration based on the modern wave of talented female artists. Next to Chelsea Wolfe, there is also Emma Ruth Rundle rapidly building her space on the market. Her captivating voice and an amazing taste for cold melodies are more than addictive. If you look at her list of favorite albums, the magic of her sound suddenly makes more sense. In addition we also spoke about her gear, challenges on a tour and beauties of Prague, which is also on her current European tour schedule on 18th of October.

Emma Ruth Rundle Interview // “On Dark Horses” Out Now 


Stream “On Dark Horses” HERE
Interview via Brooklyn Vegan

Emma Ruth Rundle is an American singer-songwriter, guitarist, and visual artist. Born in Los Angeles, she is now based in Louisville, Kentucky, where she wrote and recorded her latest album, On Dark Horses, out today via Sargent House. Rundle’s latest singles feature the duality which is common throughout much of her work: lyrically, while she is trapped in a “life spent uneasy” in “Fever Dreams,” but on “Darkhorse,” she sees a world where she can “still stand high.” This dynamic is also reflected in the music, where dark, brooding guitars and percussion are both fighting against and propelling the emotion and melody carried by Rundle’s vocals.

Image result for punk rock theory

"It's almost a cliché these days to say that a record defies genre conventions, but in the case of On Dark Horses, there isn't a better way to describe it. It combines elements of folk, country, and post metal without belonging to any of them. It vacillates between solemnity and celebration, always maintaining the same emotional heft. So while I might not know what section to put it under in my record collection, I do know it will be getting plenty of time on the turntable.” – Punk Rock Theory 9/10


“This is Emma Ruth Rundle’s best album, and it further proves the continued mastering of her approach to darker music.” – Tanda Media 9/10
