Arriving a year after the release of her 2019 iTunes chart topping debut EP, ‘Racing Cars’, and two years after her similarly successful debut single, “Dreams”, Ruti returns with a fresh collection of reflective and intimate neo-soul flavoured jams. A self-described “seasonal person”, Ruti’s laid-back summer-infused new tracks glow with confidence, providing a rich soundscape for her leftfield melodies and soothing soprano. Spearheaded by single ‘Closer To You’ out this July 31st, the track is the first of a 4-track EP to be released later this year and it stands as an impressive entrance into the project, allowing Ruti’s name to sit comfortably amongst fellow female risers Celeste, Pip Millett, Arlo Parks and Mahalia. Produced by producer to the stars Wayne Wilkins, most notably known for this work with Beyoncé.The respective music video is an endearing, DIY visualiser kindred to Ruti’s youthful, uplifting spirit. Recruiting the creative eye of her sister, they pieced the video together using the backdrop of Ruti’s local spots, culminating in an authentic product of lock down and the creative ways around its possible restraints!
