The Rua - "Without You" (video) (Premiere)

by Brice Ezell

4 February 2015

The second entry into PopMatters's six week behind-the-scenes look at the new album by the UK sibling trio the Rua is the lovely "Without You".

Having already picked up some attention in their native United Kingdom, the all-sibling trio the Rua, comprised of 22-year old Roseanna Brown (voice and guitar), 24-year old Alanna Brown (piano and backing vocals) and 19-year old Jonathan Brown (violin, guitar, vocals and backing vocals), are preparing to bring their music across the pond. The classically trained trio’s debut LP Essence is being prepared for a spring 2015 release in the States. Already, the Rua have earned comparisons to the likes of Fleetwood Mac from publications like Q Magazine, and the association is certainly not off. Emotionally resonant and harmonically arresting, these siblings have put their best foot forward with their debut LP.

Last week, PopMatters premiered the first of six behind-the-scenes videos for the new album by the Rua, “Fight For What’s Right”. Below you can view the second entry into this series, “Without You”.
