Ruby Gilbert recently released her new single ‘No Vacancy’, a song that nestles beautifully between dreamy country and a more soulful, vintage Americana sound with electric slide guitar and trumpet. Noir aesthetics of bruised romance and helplessness run through the song.
“’No Vacancy’ is about the early stages of a romance and the inevitability of it coming to an end. I wrote the song in 2018 and was on tour at the time, and had been spending a lot of time in hotel rooms, which I felt fit the theme of the song.”
Since the release of her debut EP Dearly Beloved in 2018, Ruby Gilbert has received a Queensland Music Award nomination for her debut single ‘Oh Bones’, has played multiple prominent festivals around Australia including BIGSOUND and has opened for the likes of C.W. Stoneking, Justin Townes Earle and The Teskey Brothers.
