Calgary’s Reuben and the Dark is a collection of five multi-instrumentalists and vocalists led by Reuben Bullock. The group makes chilling, emotive folk and soul – driven by dark, introspective lyrics that explore the duality of misery and joy.
Boasting a rare chemistry between all members who hail from across Western Canada, Reuben and the Dark has emerged organically from Canada’s stellar independent scene on the strength of often anthemic compositions that translate language and emotion into song with haunting clarity. Their 2018 sophomore album, Arms of a Dream, comes after years of extensive touring and is chock-full of tightly coiled verses, thundering choruses, soaring synths and chanting vocals.
