What they had to say:
“Up-and-coming independent musician Ruben Vine is a fine example of a result of the DIY subculture of which he has been a part of for many years. Also proudly claiming the titles of a wordsmith and songwriter, Ruben specialises in the alternative rock and urban folk genres. He is influenced by the likes of huge names such as PJ Harvey, The Kills and Tom Waits and is currently signed to A.O.F (Articles of Faith).
Doomed, Ruben’s most recent single, is a wonderful demonstration of alternative rock. Beginning with explosive, dirty riffs, he takes no time before rushing into portraying his powerful message through the carefully-crafted lyrics performed by his exciting and unique vocals. With a successfully-repetitive chorus, enhanced by the addition of female vocals in the background, and a reinforcement of the heavy lead guitar, Doomed is a catchy, upbeat track that is sure to catch the attention of the British music industry.
