Welcoming Ruby Goon to Phantasy

Phantasy are delighted to introduce the first taste of an exciting new signing, Ruby Goon, debuting with a limited-edition 7”, ‘Cold Wind/Leech!’. Led by singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ivan Solimani-Lezhnev, these two tracks originally emerged from the forward-thinking live circuit of Moscow, Russia, where Solimani-Lezhnev’s youthful but timeless songwriting and performances helped define a flourishing and progressive alternative underground.

'Cold Wind' is out now on streaming platforms, whilst the limited edition 7" vinyl is out 10th June. Pre-order the vinyl here

Ruby Goon’s talents for melody and melancholy sweep in with rare assurance on Cold Wind’, a plaintive and irresistible nugget of rock instrumentation, Solimani-Lezhnev’s guitar gently weeping, then subtly erupting alongside a yearning vocal and soaring brass.

‘Leech!’ embraces a distinct sensitivity at play within the collective, a sensual and lyrically speculative slice of contemporary blues that illustrates the talent and chemistry evident between Solimani-Lezhnev and his band. Recalling the softer avenues of seventies glam and soul, Leech!’ seduces with a vulnerability that roots it firmly in the contemporary.
