Emma Ruth Rundle: Return

Engine of Hell will be the new album by Emma Ruth Rundle, incoming November 5th, 2021 through Sargent House. First single and the album's opening piece, Return, suggests something quite stripped down and unadorned, and definitely on par with the artist's intimate approach to songwriting. 

The fantastic and downright grabbing video which comes with the song was directed by ERR herself, citing influence from Jean Cocteau’s Orpheus and Wim Wenders’ Wings of Desire.

Rundle explains: “An examination of the existential. A fractured poem. Trying to quantify what something is definitely about or pontificating on its concrete meaning defeats the purpose of art making. I’m not a writer. I make music and images to express things that my words cannot convey or emote. I’ve been studying ballet and the practice of expression through movement, which I incorporated into the video. I choreographed a dance to the song - some of which you see. Pieces show through. Since completing Engine of Hell, I’ve stepped away from music more and more and into things like dance, painting and working on ideas for videos or little films. ‘Return’ is the result of the efforts.
