“Haven” is the standout track from up and coming Alt Pop artist Ruby Layne’s 2020 darkly arrestive self-titled EP. Pop doesn’t come much more atmospheric than this without making any compromise on the accessibility.
The moody and ominous tones will hook you in from the first verse. From there on out, you’ll be enveloped in a soundscape which finds the perfect balance between Alt Rock and Pop. Boasting the same dynamic vocal style as Evanescence’s Amy Lee along with a Post-Punk-laced moody atmospheric instrumental arrangement complete with pensive piano keys and angular guitars, Haven is a track which you’ll struggle to forget.
Ruby Layne may be fresh from her inception, but it’s already perceptibly clear that she has plenty to offer, and we’re all too excited to hear it.
