Ruru is a solo project of the Manila-based artist, Ru Quimbo. She began writing music in 2014, fueled by various influences of twee, alt, rnb, jazz, and bedroom pop. She writes with the witty lyricism of someone who was once 13; her verses are mangled scenes that seem to have been taken straight out of a living room party involving balloons, aquariums, fizzy drinks, and lots of introspection. Our song of the month, When You’re Away, was featured on her 2017 EP titled Sleep. Hear the rest over at bandcamp.
