Music is an expression of the different poetries that people experience throughout their everyday lives, there is beauty in the simplest of things, it just rests on the lens we choose to see to view it through. This is what Melbourne-based collaborators VANTA and Ruyi aim to express with their latest Alt-Pop release titled 'Blue September', which is now available on all streaming platforms, along with its music video!
A culmination of 11 months worth of blending in each other's personal flavors to the track, the duo is set on making a mark in the scene with their latest release. It's a beautiful mix of crisp clean synths, and slow drums, in theproduction by both musicians, which is complimented by their somber mix of R&B/Rock infused vocals and VANTA's powerful guitar outro. It's a perfect blend to compliment the song's lyricism which peaks into the beautifuland ugly experience of faking emotion and pleasure, may it be for love or otherwise.

With both musicians being influenced by a diverse range of musicians it's not far reaching to say their unique soundis a fusion of classical and modern elements.
