Amoeba Review

01/28/2013

Ruby Suns’ sparkling indie pop, which in the past has built its base on tribal beats and washy synths, makes a remarkable jump to out-and-out pop on Christopher. “Desert of Pop” takes off on freestyle beats and Pet Shop Boys synthesizers while singer Ryan McPhun moves his vocals up slightly in the mix, singing that “he’s always falling in love” with a clubgoer’s glee. The shyness that made Ruby Suns’ previous releases charming is still intact, as McPhun sings “I’m not ready for the real life” on “In Real Life,” which is something like Ibiza twee. While no one will mistake McPhun’s loopy, gauzy songs for radio confection, his new pop aspirations take his wallflower psychedelia to new heights.
