Boston has a varied musical sound, but nothing else in the city sounds anything like Ruby Grove. The band released a new single today that is almost impossibly infectious. "Maybe It's Time" has this laid back lo-fi trip hop groove intermingled with hip hop, R&B, and indie rock. It's a distinct and new sound that feels warmly familiar, but defies any true categorization. Frontwoman Melissa Nilles describes the band's sound as “the sonic lovechild of Beats Antique, Portishead, Jamiroquai, Gnarls Barkley, and Gorillaz," so we're going to go with her words. What's indisputable is how cool "Maybe It's Time" sounds. You know how in the 90's bands would mine the 60's for a retro cool sound? Ruby Grove are the 2023 version of repurposing old sounds into something brand new and fresh. I'm willing to bet you're going to be hearing about them around here a lot.
