Stream: Ruby Pins, “Chameleon”

April 25, 2013


There's a strange, looking-through-your-grandmother's-perfume-collection eeriness to this first video from Ruby Pins, the long-in-the-making side project of Grasswidow drummer and vocalist Lillian Maring. Maring recorded the bulk of her self-titled debut last summer using nothing but an "old computer" and a microphone, and lead single "Chameleon" sounds straight out of the garage, even as her clipped, understated vocals add a distinctly feminine touch. She says that the songs on the album were inspired by dreams that her friends had about her, which may account for some of the surrealist turns that take place in this video, like the overturned vase of black flowers in dark liquid. Ruby Pins is out now via M'lady's Records. (via Pitchfork)
