A Deli NYC premiere: Lake Ruth's 'The Only One Who Knows'

A Deli NYC premiere: Lake Ruth's 'The Only One Who Knows'

We can't exactly tell what Lake Ruth's singer Allison Brice sings about in the band's new single 'The Only One Who Knows' we are premiering below - the lyrics are rather unintelligible. Nonetheless, her vocals carry a quality of wisdom and sweet confidence that makes us picture a young mother - our Platonic mother? - giving us precious advice, with her beautiful, hopeful voice, about that relentless unraveling of mysteries called life. And even though the band's music, heavily influenced by the psychedelic '60s, puts this semi-imaginary lady in a historical context our real mother missed, the track's 'vintage' sound and dreamy atmosphere contribute in setting the stage for the most reassuring of dreams: re-living the days when we had somebody on our side who could answer all our questions: 'The Only One Who Knows'.

Don't miss Lake Ruth at NYC Popfest on May 22nd at Littlefield. LP Actual Entity' out on June 24th, 2016 on The Great Pop Supplement.
