THE RUBENS
‘FREAKOUT (EDIT)’
(single taken from album LO LA RU, out now through Ivy League Records)

Following the release of their third album LO LA RU, which debuted at #3 on the ARIA Album Chart, The Rubens, who are currently on a 42-arena-date tour with P!NK, have announced the release of their new single ‘Freakout’. The single is the follow-up to their recent hit ‘Never Ever (feat. Sarah)’.

Listen to ‘Freakout’ here

‘Freakout’ is classic Rubens. Opening with Sam’s unaccompanied voice and building slowly from piano ballad into a big brassy roof raiser, it’s proof that while the band are determined to have a good time, they are also confident enough to be vulnerable and unafraid to lay themselves bare.

On LO LA RU, The Rubens used the success of single ‘Hoops’ as an opportunity to spread their creative wings, pushing their music into new territory that is exciting for them, and hopefully by extension, their audience as well.

From the exuberant party jam ‘Million Man’ that kicks off the album, it’s clear The Rubens are intent on capturing the simple joy of lifelong friends making music together. The laid back, good times carry on into ‘Go On’, an infectious vocal hook and a stripped back beat that’s impossible not to nod your head to, all coated in Sam Margin’s buttery as hell croon. ‘I Know’ is another hooky-as-hell jam, built on the back of a bouncy bass groove.

The single follows recent hit ‘Never Ever (feat. Sarah)’, co-written with Sarah Aarons (the Australian songwriter best known for penning Zedd and Alessia Cara’s US #1 hit ‘Stay’). ‘Never Ever’ is the first time the band have collaborated with an outsider and the first time Sam has shared lead vocals on a Rubens record. The track reached #1 most played on triple j and has since been added across the board to stations across NOVA, HIT Networks, KIIS & many more.
