Bio

Adelaide artist Reuben Gore first started producing music in his high school years after developing a strong interest in the Britpop sound of the nineties. He established his high school band, Sencha, in December of 2013 as the lead singer/songwriter. In 2014 the band released their debut five track EP, recorded and produced by Gore in his Adelaide Hills home.

Sencha has since gained positive reviews from various Triple J presenters including Alex Dyson, Veronica Milsom and senior manager Amelia Chappelow who left the track Hey There a 4.5/5 star review, commenting "I love Britpop, but this is sweeter". The band has also featured on music programs and podcasts throughout Australia including Birdee Mag, ABC Radio National, and 100.3FM Brisbane's Radioactive Program.

Since departing Sencha, Gore has been at work on new material that is more beat driven than his previous releases. His latest sound has been described as ‘dark alt-pop’, and is heavily influenced by the sounds of post-Britpop bands including The Verve, Massive Attack, and Radiohead.

Live Your Life is Reuben’s debut solo release that just dropped on February 12th. Recorded in Gore’s spare room, the song explores the theme of narcissism and the thriving ambition to do whatever it takes to appear better than others, as well as the inability to live in and enjoy the present due to obsessing over the future.
