Ben Khan – Ruby

Ben Khan

Ben Khan has been quietly collecting praise from tastemakers across the music scene. The highly talented, multi-instrumentalist has just released the visuals for ‘Ruby’, his favourite track of the recent self-entitled album, out now via Dirty Hit.

Directed and produced entirely by Khan himself, the visuals perfectly marry the track’s synthetic and futuristic themes with his undemanding vocals, silently driven by anger and sadness.

A year ago, he travelled to Kashmir, the home of his father (who works in textiles, and whose floral art inspired some of the album’s artwork), “and I just walked around and took sounds on my daily rituals, and tried to put that in there somehow, so it felt like a journey through places.” The result, he hopes, is a work of “magical realism.”

Kaleida – Ruby



Synthpop duo KALEIDA is the combined talents of London based Christina Wood (vocals,
lyrics) and Cicely Goulder (keys & production, lyrics).

Their music acts as a voice for feminist and political rights.

New track ‘Ruby’ is the perfect showcase for Wood’s rosy and unique vocals, as well as Goulder’s effortless skills on keys. Combined, the girls have created a track worthy of being from the 80s.

KALEIDA will release their debut EP ‘THINK’ on 6 April through LEX Records.

Tour Dates:

11 April – Birthdays, London – Kaleida EP Launch
12 May – Gorilla, Manchester (Roisin Murphy support)
13 May – Concorde 2, Brighton (Roisin Murphy support)
