The vocals here are giving me real Grimes vibes. They're mixed into the song very nicely and have some cool audio manipulations applied to them. The two drops as well are really cool and pack a heap of low-end power to them.

This new single getting me even more excited for the new Loveboy and His Imaginary Friends album (which is releasing this Friday). Each release from Nicolaj under the Loveboy project has been diverse and consistently enjoyable. The entire musical project has such a fantastic and playful vision behind it. Definitely one of my favourite Unearthed discoveries this year.

This entire track works really really well. It has such a good drum n bass styled progression. Plus, the vocals are integrated into the song super effectively. I'm a huge fan of that lead synth in the chorus sections. It's so dense and saturated, which makes it powerful and awesome to listen to. Great job!!

Really love the energy on this track. The song has a great progression to it, starting very dreamy and atmospheric before building into this really funky and danceable tune! Also, that bass guitar is just awesome.

'Underwater' is another fantastic and ultra soulful single from RUBY. The vocals feel almost effortless. Plus, they are layered extremely well which gives them a really nice stereo width. The highly reverberated guitar at the end of the track sounds awesome. Great job!

Wow, I love the organic instrumentation used throughout this song. It's just beautiful. It's also quite unique. It reminds me I guess of Bon Iver with his recent releases.

On top of this, the entire track feels intrinsically intertwined with the natural world, which ironically is made possible by the clever and often subtle electronic production used in the song. One other thing as well, the mixing here is really really well done. I love the amount of stereo space that is utilised throughout the track. Super keen to hear how this song fits into your new EP!

There's some huge energy on this track! I love how hard the vocals go on literally every verse. I especially love the vocals that come in just after the 45 second mark. The production as well does a great job at making the entire song feel epic in scale.

Feeling those Bon Iver / Ásgeir influences on this track. For starters, the vocals sound really really good and are mixed fantastically in the song. The backing instrumentation is also spot on! In particular, I love the spacious acoustic guitar and that beautiful saxophone feature towards the end of the song. Awesome job here! Sounds really good!

That lead bass is sick! It has a huge amount of power to it and has quite a nice mid-range distortion which sounds really cool. The vocals as well are processed super well and I love the audio effects you've applied to them to make them sound almost other-worldly. Also, the progression on the song is very well executed and keeps the track engaging from start to finish.

Absolutely love how well this song builds. It starts super atmospheric and then develops into this awesome drum n bass styled track. Everything is mixed extremely well (I especially love those conga drums that come in near the end of the track and how they are panned to the far left and right). Also, those pads are super dreamy and sound fantastic in the context of the song. Great work!

Super eerie production on this track. Love the audio effects that have been applied to the lead vocals. It makes them sound other wordly, which works really well in the context of the song. Should mention as well that there is a great momentum to the song. Those kicks are quite punchy and have some cool delay effects added to them during the breakdown.

Feeling some really sick techno vibes with this tune! Reminds me a lot of Daniel Avery mixed in with Against All Logic and a bit of Willaris. K. I love the spacious pads that build up in the first drop. I'm also a huge fan of those ultra distorted 808's that come in just before the two minute mark.

Absolutely love the intro to the song. The reverb applied to those percussive hits sounds so damn good! It also kind of sounds like there are footsteps running around from left to right? Whatever it is, I love it. The best thing this song does is create atmosphere. It reminds me of Björk in the sense that she has always been really good at creating a distinct atmosphere in her music.

Did not expect that second drop to come in so hard! Such a cool switch up which surprisingly works extremely really well in the song. The production on this track is very well executed and introduces new elements consistently throughout. Also, the song is mixed really nicely and there's some great use of space. Great work!

There's a great mix genres on this song. The folk elements work really nicely with the electronic components. The only other artist who I've heard do something similar to this is Mid-Air Thief.

WOOOOOW! I absolutely love that breakdown in the middle half or the song. Reminds me a lot of this drum n bass artist called Little Snake. Listening to the track with headphones is super cool and truly highlights your insanely good use panning and space. Also, this is such a unique sounding song! It feels like a bit PC Music with some elements sounding like they'd come from a SOPHIE track....

The lead vocal sample mixed in with that bassline works really well. There is a nice sense of space to this song, especially with the delay that is used throughout the track.

Super interesting and cool track. There are so many cool elements in this song which makes it extremely enjoyable to listen to. The track kind of transforms throughout with each new section and reaches this really awesome climax with that slightly distorted wobbly bass. Really liking what I'm hearing out of the Loveboy and His Imaginary Friends project. Keen to hear more.
