Ruel once again leaves us all ‘Dazed & Confused’


It’s only been 38 days since we last hyped Ruel — but that’s essentially an eternity for a 15-year-old. The teenage alt-pop upstart born in London and raised in Australia is gearing up for the June 15 release of his debut EP Ready, and has offered another look behind the curtain at his talents with the bluesy, R&B-kissed single “Dazed & Confused.” The Grey Ghost-directed video dropped this week, further cementing the multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter as wide beyond his years. “All my songs are about personal experiences,” he says. “Songwriting helps me get through things, feelings that I don’t understand myself. When I write about something, it helps me figure it out in the process. But I want people of all ages, whether they’re 15 or 50, to be able to relate to my songs.” That’s a breeze when they connect with a cool ease. Featured image via High Rise.
