Ruby Empress – Kimono House

From the first bass synth, to the bridge, the song brightens up the road to that bright new horizon. It’s where new ideas and new emotions intermingle – play – and reports back. It’s grand up there. Let’s join. Ruby Empress’ Kimono House is a sexy, rundown, and dance ’till unemotional – kind of naughtiness.


That’s what we see in our heads when we listen to this song.

Come here, my beautiful girl. Let’s take a walk.
This sunshine on Chicago’s south end, talking about the glories of old.
Holding hands and feeling electric, the finger dancing starts.
And starts in transit, fascination explored.
Why don’t we change scenes, it’s Berlin by 4.

‘Kimono House’ is a first new single for R/E, which dropped on November 17th, 2017.

The band depicts the song as, to paraphrase: “..(Kimono House) is a metaphor..” for how the world is a wall of clothing – which we can mix and choose how and why we mask our ‘real’ selves beneath. Or in other cases, how and why we choose to promote ourselves, in certain ways.

It’s a valid question.

But human beings are horridly egoistical and self-involved in many ways.

That’s the way it is, and it’s not a judgement on us all.

It’s a double edged sword. We sometimes seem vain. But on by species standard, we need that vain-ness to keep to societal mores and sensibilities.

Well, it’s not perfect, but it is a method.

In any case, ‘balance’ is a key.

And many of us on earth do work on that balance, day to day. Even if it’s very stressful.

Anywho, this song is fab, and unlike the subject matter, very low on calories and guilt-less.

Dance you fool! Dance! Just don’t dance like ‘Elaine’.

Kudos, R/E. Kudos.
