Jesse Ruins: Laura is Fading

Laura is Fading has all the elements you’d expect to find in a Jesse Ruins song, including the insistent beat, the indistinct, repetitive vocals and the shrill, whistling synth that calls round like an old friend as the song moves towards closure. Not that there’s anything wrong with that — in fact it’s probably why it’s the single — and it’s certainly not to say that there’s nothing interesting about the song and production. The heavily compressed drums that come in just after the one minute mark give it a taut, claustrophobic energy that’s curiously at odds with the sweeping, expansive synth backdrop, and all in all it bodes well for the forthcoming album.
