The Rua – “Into the Crowd” (video) (Premiere)

The penultimate installment of PopMatters's six-week series on the UK sibling trio the Rua zeroes in on "Into the Crowd", one of the edgier numbers on the trio's forthcoming LP Essence.

The all-sibling trio called 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), has already caused a splash in its native United Kingdom with its debut album, Essence. With that LP about to see its United States release, the Rua are offering listeners a chance to go behind the scenes of the making of the music on a track-by-track basis. The Rua’s knack for gripping melodies, in addition to their background in classical training, make them a rising talent to keep an eye out for.

There’s only one week left after this installment of PopMatters‘s six-week series on Essence. This week, the band explains a bit about the track “Into the Crowd”, which Jonathan describes as one of the “edgier” moments on the record.

Essence is set for a St. Patrick’s Day release in the United States, 17 March, via FOD.
