There is something so feisty and yet so fragile about New Zealander Ruby Frost. The left-of-field songstress, who grabbed my attention at the turn of the year with fore-running single “Porcupine”, holds great command with her striking La Roux-esque vocal presence twinned with her flaming red hair.
As prelude to her forthcoming debut album “Volition” Ruby delivers a simply stunning alternative pop anthem in “Water To Ice” that flares off thoughts of all the best in show of female elevated alternative pop makers Bjork, Bat For Lashes, The Good Natured and Florence.
“Water To Ice” is zingy indie pop juice, that crests on a wave of new age intrinsic profusion hitting at an earthy note on a freshly squeezed organic level. I consider it quite divine and I dearly hope, that it becomes available to buy worldwide soon, since I very much want to immerse myself indulgently into the luscious sublime world of music by Ruby Frost.
