Emma Ruth Rundle – Marked For Death
Emma Ruth Rundle is an American singer-songwriter, guitarist and visual artist based in Louisville, Kentucky. Formerly of the Nocturnes, she has released three solo albums and is a current member of Red Sparowes and Marriages. Her sound is an eclectic mix of folk, experimental rock, and metal, prioritizing ambience and texture over traditional rock tropes. She has cited Kate Bush and David Lynch as influences. Marked For Death is her third studio album, and follow up to her 2014 album Some Heavy Ocean. The songs on the album were written in isolation in the desert after Rundle moved to Louisville, Kentucky. Emma described the sound of the album in a press release: The subject matter is largely about being defeated and shrunken into the base human themes of love and loss. It’s a far cry from high art. It’s very much from the dirt.
