Debut Self-Titled LP Out Now
#7 Billboard Heatseeker Middle Atlantic
"Furious and shadowy, propelled by a rousing chorus that evokes early Walkmen." - Consequence of Sound
"You can practically see the lightning bolts coming through your speakers." - Impose Magazine
"Ruby Bones put the guitars and the grit front and center, but without sacrificing any of Nova’s clear melodic gifts." - PopMatters
"A frantic shot in the dark...a reminder to hold onto your youthful vigor" - Buffablog
"A very modern indie rock sensibility that could easily carry the band to radio popularity." - YabYum
Indie rockers Ruby Bones combine energetic rhythms with visceral, existential lyrics and unabashed hooks to form short, punchy songs best digested in the sweat-soaked clubs that define New Jersey and Brooklyn.
Made up of vocalist/guitarist Chris Nova, drummer James Janocha, and South African import FC Spies on bass, the trio (along with Denis Daley providing sax) describes itself as "Bruce Springsteen on cocaine after a few drags off a helium balloon."
With a mutual love of rock and roll, the band turned Nova's folk songs into thoughtful yet vibrant tracks inspired by loss, love, and the double-edged blade of our tech-reliant culture.
