Audio visual artist Ruby Tingle released her new single ‘Familiars‘ at the beginning of July. As with her previous release, EP Lagoons, the single is accompanied by a
solo exhibition at a gallery; this time at the PAPER Gallery in Manchester – it runs until 6 August 2022. As a multi disciplinary artist, Ruby works with progressive electronica in Manchester as well as exhibiting at galleries such as The Saatchi and Manchester Art Gallery, whilst also being one half of cinematic bass act Dirty Freud.
Ruby’s solo music mixes natural sound processes and an impressive range of vocals that turn out as original, experimental and dreamy. ‘Familiars’ is of a similar vein and is about rediscovering your true self and spirituality as a result of falling in love with someone from your past. Created with producers / artists Rookes, Daisy P and KINRAR, this is Ruby’s second collaboration with music and art of the year.
The exhibition at PAPER explores Ruby’s connection to spirit animals, constellations and the colour red, inspired by time spent at her local nature reserve at sunset over the last year. Collage, installation, sound and scent will transform the gallery into a twilight swamp. Commissioned as part of A Modest Show running as a satellite programme to this year’s British Art Show, Ruby will also take part in a live showcase at Soup Manchester with other acts from No Such Thing Records on August 5th to premier the track as part of a performance.
Familiars was released on 1 July on No Such Thing Records.
Ruby will premier the track on 5 August. If you can’t make it, follow her at:
