Stonefield : Ruby Skies


The Findlay sisters return with a song about the Black Saturday bushfires, in which their devilish electric guitar noodling sets the scene for the lyrical hook: “Ruby skies, send the rain.” Again, the girls tick all the boxes for a ’70s rock devotional – loose and confident ax work, psychedelic, reverb-drenched vocals and just a touch of funk in the rhythm – but it still doesn’t sound right. They sound like talented kids performing some lesser-known and slightly boring rock musical.
