Born Ruffians are actually three Canadians, and they make indie-pop in a traditional sense that old-school collectors of 4AD and Sub Pop's early roster would raise more than an eyebrow at. In a similar vein to fellow XL artists Tapes'n Tapes, they owe a large debt to the likes of Pixies and Buffalo Tom, yet at no point does this record sound retro or plagiaristic. After selling out shows at The Old Blue Last and Hobby Horse in record quick time, Born Ruffians are back again with a new album, ‘Say It’.
Tonight @ Scala, London!!
