First of all, before we move on to dissecting “Never Ever,” those pants are FIERCE. Now back to the music – the blues/soul Aussie quintet encapsulates us into the blame game we all play before breaking up in their new single “Never Ever” featuring the crispy vocals of mysterious gal Sarah. “Never Ever” is a semi-acoustic track where the minimalistic background walks us through the complicated sentiments that are involved during emotional hot mess. Despite its theme, it’s actually a catchy and cheeky track lets you indulge in the peacefully silent rhythm:

“The song became about these two lovers caught in the moment as their relationship drops away. There’s to-ing and fro-ing as they pass blame and second guess their actions before they realise that what they had is already over.” shared Elliott Margin (keys/vocals)

The other members of The Rubens are Elliott Margin (keys/vocals), Zaac Margin (lead guitar), Scott Baldwin (drums), and Will ‘Hog’ Zeglis (Bass) who formed back in 2011. “Never Ever” is from The Rubens’ upcoming third album LO LA RU, which will be out on June 29th. They will start touring in May:
