Indie-pop quartet Fond of Rudy work their craft and display a musical versatility with new single ‘To Be Mine’.
In contrast to the group’s previous single ‘L O V E’, a sweetened downtempo cut of reflection and vulnerability, the track is a shorter but still sweet pop package of driving rhythms and memorable hooks.
The undemanding and direct thought process is demonstrated in the way their music constantly moves in, propelled by lead singer Matt’s staccato vocal delivery and Ross’s sleek guitar instrumentation amidst a sunny production has the feel of The 1975’s debut album, particularly their track ‘Girls’ with its upbeat poppy chorus.
The Brighton-based group explain that the song was “written a while ago and straight of the back off an argument. It’s a love song I suppose, plain and simply asking the question…why does there have to be complications, can’t attraction just be simple.”
