Ruto’s latest release, “Double Speak,” blends diverse genres, complex emotions, and dark and bright atmospheres all together in a smooth manner without exaggeration. Only a witty artist can craft such sophisticated output.
The musical project Ruto is the brainchild of the gifted Oscar Bautista. Ruto started as a band in 2016 and then evolved into a one-man band headed by Bautista. The musical prowess of Oscar is demonstrated through his pushing the boundaries of genres, musical composition sensitivities, a serious performance, and thought-provoking lyricism. You can easily witness all of these elements gathered masterfully in “Double Speak.”
“Double Speak” is a relevant song that conveys a conventional dilemma through unconventional musicianship. If there’s an artist who can portray manipulation, gaslighting, and being lost through bombastic flair, it’s got to be Ruto. The instrumental part urges you to vibe in, while the lyrics are a realistic wake-up call, and the vocal line plays its role in striking a balance between them.
You’ll find yourself amid a mystic realm where Indie Rock, Psychedelic, Funk, Jazz, Post-Punk, and Pop harmonize and result in a soaring composition. Each instrument adds a certain feel in a line between dramatic and energetic, which makes you immersed in a mix of emotions and enjoy the profound mixture. The intense musicality seamlessly hovers around the hoarse vocals, which offer a mature performance with a sense of both vulnerability and power.
Who didn’t say for once, “All I need is a little bit of truth”? Join Ruto, demand some clarity in your life with him, and enjoy his top-notch sound and production.
