Rude – “Sapphire”

2 Mar

Rude - Sapphire

Previously, Birmingham based mystery producer / band / thing, Rude, has dazzled us with frenzied drums and vibrant technicolour electronics, such as those found on previous track ”Heartbreaker”. While that Tasmanian Devil of a tune kicks off Rude’s debut EP, Winter, the remaining three tracks are more subdued and heartfelt in tone.

Take “Sapphire” for example. It’s subtle and elegant like a Japanese Fan Dance; the electronic melody swirls effortlessly making stylish patterns, punctuated with cool digital beats. It’s graceful and gentle, a gradual slow burn of emotion and realisation encased in crystalline production that eventually picks up the tempo. Ultimately the guitar steps in and behoves a blur of movement as the dance heightens and reaches its climax.

Alongside “Sapphire” the aptly named “Icecold” chills and trickles softly and there are idiosyncrasies within the EP as well; little nuances and segues that further show there is much more to Rude than the video game freneticism of “Heartbreaker”.

”Sapphire” features on the debut Rude EP, ‘Winter’, which is out now via Love By Mistake and is available to buy on iTunes.
