WL//WH Track Of The Day: THE RUMENTS “Below”

Track Of The Day  THE RUMENTS  

One of the catchiest and magnetically danceable goth-tinged songs of the last weekend comes from The Ruments, an 80s-influenced enigmatic solo project from Vancouver, British Columbia, that sparkles over a familiar yet electrifying combination between New Order’s driving electronic rhythms and The Cure’s vibrant chiming guitars, framed by a worthy emotive vocal delivery.

“Below” deals with introspective lyrics that release the fear of physical death by surrendering to the spiritual power of eternal life.

The single rides a gripping trotting wave of steady whipping beats along buzzing and chugging bass undulations, bright echoing guitar lines, veiled by icy lonesome synth drifts, to vibrate with a haunting piercing ache over sad, stoic heartfelt vocals, dropping angst and dread into a searing, flowing pain-laden string of dour fatalism.
