'Escapism Deluxe' Video Premiered By noisey

video produced by Meskaprod

"Ruby Empress' Video for "Escapism Deluxe" Is Carnal Excellence" 

"This video is 100 percent The Sixth Sense: The R-Rated Euro Edition. Instead of a wide-eyed Haley Joel Osment whispering "I see dead people," we've got a female protagonist with cute baby bangs and gorgeous baby blues, making her way around Paris, slipping into a sexual reverie with every Tom, Dick, and Mary she meets."

Profet musik: 'The Ruby factory' - en intervju med Ruby Empress 

"Deras konst berör en in i grunden. Den är grymt genomarbetad, intellektuell, känslig och vacker. När en lyssnar på EP:n hemma i sängen, så kan man inte tro att det blir bättre. När man ser dem live så vänds hela ens bild av Ruby Empress upp och ner"  - Elizeth Casal


"In the past few years Sweden has really been at the forefront of producing excellently crafted pop songs and stars. With the likes of Tove Lo and Zara Larsson already establishing themselves as ones to watch, Ruby Empress can now be added to the list of Scandinavian acts showing the rest of the world how to do pop properly."

"Göteborgsbandet Ruby Empress spelar slick pop i stil med sena The Strokes och Phoenix med ljudbilder som påminner om neon och ändlösa sommarnätter."

"And the title of the EP is Empressionism, what’s that?"

"Our own « ism », of course we had to have one. After Impressionism came Expressionism and Popism and then Empressionism, named after the Empress of course."

"Hey Tom, we’re happy to be speaking with you today. Will you tell us a little about the journey you all had to take in order to establish Ruby Empress?"

Forumist magazine Feature

"Few bands today understand the shared history and common purpose of music and fashion. Ruby Empress, on the other hand, is built upon that understanding. The Gothenburg quartet breathes new air into the predetermined visual depiction of a pop band by crossing over styles and ignoring gender confinements."  
- Filip Lindström

Release review: Ruby Empres "Empressionism"
