The Sister Ruby Band is premiering the video for “Graceland Smile” from their upcoming debut CD In Cold Blood. The video was filmed by London based film artist Richard Nicholson, using a 1981 JVC KY-1900 3-Tube Color Video Camera. The footage was shot on location at the Barbican Estate, one of the most iconic examples of Brutalist architecture built in the United Kingdom during the ’60s and ’70s.
The Sister Ruby Band is the psych-rock project of 22 year old Los Angeles based Johnny Ruby. After last year’s self-recorded EP A Shot In The Dark, The Sister Ruby Band is set to release their full-length debut album In Cold Blood.
According to Buzz Bands LA’s Kevin Bronson, “Sister Ruby’s woozy wall of sound isn’t too far from the reverb-soaked shimmer of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and, when the guitars are turned down, that trio’s excellent excursion into Americana, “Howl.” The singer himself? Ruminative and world-weary, on two continents.”
