New Music: New Look
by Winston "Stone" Ford
New Look – Numbers
New Look – Everything
2010 has been filled with some beautiful voices, and New Look’s Sarah Ruba is no exception. The husband and wife duo has been creating a small buzz for a minute in their native Canada for a minute, but 2010 seems to be their year to bubble up to the surface.
Unlike a lot of electro which seems to be a dime a dozen these days, it’s Sara’s voice that sets the group apart from others. Whether its the sultry, almost soulful house influenced “Numbers,” or the ever engaging “Everything,” which is kind of a more electronic take on old school Sade with a house breakdown at the bridge.
New Look is currently in the studio in Brooklyn working on a new album which may or may not include Theophilus London. I’m interested to see what they will come up with next.
