Rock out to this hot new track “Hook Line Sinker” from Ruby Bones. It’ll have you dancing along like a goof instantly. The animated vocal performance given by Chris Fox is infectious because of the way he belts out “maybe you’re not weird enough” which is a fun defiant way to be the cool iconoclast everyone should want to be. “Hook Line Sinker” is about doing what you want to do when you want to.
The arrangement starts off with a swift introduction to what the song is about while the guitar builds into, a quick pause, and then the whole band joins in before the verse brings the dynamics back down while still maintaining a high level of energy. The chorus that eventually hits after it feels like the bands built up energy past where you’d expect them to go is thrashing and fun. A sure song to get you stoked on life.

“Indie rockers Ruby Bones combine shout along choruses with existential musings to form fast-paced, punchy songs best enjoyed in the sweat-soaked clubs of New Jersey and Brooklyn. Made up of singer-songwriter Chris Fox, drummer James Janocha, and bassist FC Spies, the band turns Fox’s folk songs into thoughtful yet vibrant tracks full of heart and hooks.
Following their Billboard-charting debut record, Ruby Bones return with “Laser,” the first in a trio of EPs out on Mint 400 Records.
“We wanted to write something a bit more lighthearted and fun than the first album,” explains Fox. “And as songs came together they started taking on a slightly nostalgic vibe. Lyrically, I realized I was writing about losing one’s youth, so the viewpoint became that of somebody going through their 20s and longing for simpler times, even if they’re aware those times are already being romanticized.”
Clocking in at a brisk 10 minutes, the EP is no-frills rock and roll, carrying an unwavering energy start to finish.”
