The Video: “Ways”
The Artist: Ruby the RabbitFoot
Who’s That: A colorful solo artist from the musical hotbed of Athens, Georgia with a beguiling voice. Her album New As Dew is out 3/18 on Normaltown Records.
Sounds Like: Sugary vocals dunked in black coffee lyrics.
Fun Fact: Ruby’s interests include “teeth, R&B, faith, and dalmatians.”
Songwriter Says: “‘Ways’ is about a specific incident,” says Ruby, who doesn’t want to kiss and tell (when asked for a quote about the song, she initially quoted OutKast instead). “It’s so sweet when other people try to make us happy, but happiness is something you have to get for yourself.”
