The Ruby Suns

The rock band from New Zealand was formed in 2004. They find inspiration for their music in postcolonial cultures. The artists are not indifferent to the fates of modern native South Americans and ethnic groups in African countries, and they often feature them as the subjects of their songs. Their style is a combination of rock, pop and indie. So far they have released three albums: The Ruby Suns (2005), Sea Lion (2008) and, most recently, Fight Softly (2010) in which they slightly move away from rock towards tribal electronics.
