Reuben and the Dark

February 8, 2020 8:00 pm. un | love, the new album by Reuben and the Dark, is a collection of lush and beautiful songs about endings and hope for the future. Chronicling a tempestuous time in frontman Reuben Bullock's life, the album's eleven songs represent an exploration of life's crossroads, and the personal growth that comes from it. On the band's third album, Reuben and the Dark evokes the raw emotion of Bullock's soulful vocals with spacious sonics that suggest the levity that comes with the passage of a storm. un | love was produced by the band and Marcus Paquin (The National, Timber Timbre, Local Natives), who also takes up the mixing chair, as well as Kevin Drew of Broken Social Scene.Reuben and the Dark is the spirited folk-rock outfit led by songwriter-vocalist Reuben Bullock. Contemplative, passionate, and expansive, Bullock's songwriting has earned comparisons to contemporaries like Vance Joy and Matt Corby. Together, the group makes chilling, emotive folk and alt-rock driven by dark, introspective lyrics that explore the duality of sorrow and joy.. 53 Elgin StreetOttawa, ON K1P 5W1.. Event Details.
