un | love, the new album by Reuben and the Dark, is a collection of lush and beautiful
songs about endings and hope for the future. Chronicling a tempestuous time in
frontman Reuben Bullock’s life, the album’s eleven songs represent an exploration of
life’s crossroads, and the personal growth that comes from it. On the band’s third album,
Reuben and the Dark evokes the raw emotion of Bullock’s soulful vocals with spacious
sonics that suggest the levity that comes with the passage of a storm. un | love was
produced by the band and Marcus Paquin (The National, Timber Timbre, Local
Natives), who also takes up the mixing chair, as well as Kevin Drew of Broken Social
Scene.
Reuben and the Dark is the spirited folk-rock outfit led by songwriter/vocalist Reuben
Bullock. Contemplative, passionate, and expansive, Bullock’s songwriting has earned
comparisons to contemporaries like Vance Joy and Matt Corby. Together, the group
makes chilling, emotive folk and alt-rock driven by dark, introspective lyrics that explore
the duality of sorrow and joy
