Someone sent us over this nice little review The Sound Of Confusion did of our gig with Mumiy Troll at the O2 Islington Academy… Thought we'd share it with you… Rubylux - O2 Academy, Islington 25th May 2013
After a little break to throw picks into the crowd (or what I think was picks, I'm little and couldn't see properly!) they came at us with 'Inside', my favourite of the bunch, where Humprheys debuted his exquisite vocal range supported by emotional harmonies from the rest of the guys, with sleepy drumming from Hall were he genuinely plays like his kit is a part of him, rocket/space age keyboard sounds, Rubylux played through a smokey stage, and atmospheric gentle flashing lights to give an out of this world experience for everyone involved. This got a super-big cheer from the crowd too. The band then went straight into a cover of the Beatles classic 'Eleanor Rigby' which had a great electro feel and drum solo in particular which had the crowd dancing away.
Then, last but not least, the guys took a moment to gently remind the crowd of that that next song, 'The World Goes Quiet', was due for release at midnight. With shouts from the drummer: “Buy our single, we’ll love you forever!”, then more picks thrown into the crowd, “so you remember our name!”, Rubylux had half the room bopping their heads and the other half swaying and smiling into their pints. And quicker then we’d all have liked, the set was over, then Humphreys treated us all like his best mates in saying “We’ll be sticking around for a beer after, so come say hello.” And Hall whipped out his camera phone, asked for the lights to go up and shouted “Let me get a picture of you!” to a very excitable room of people all waving their arms about in the air! All in all, a very enjoyable evening, I’d recommend catching them in a town near you and it was an absolute pleasure to have been there. Cheers!"
