Ruel, the young Australian singer-songwriter, has been making waves in the music industry since his debut in 2017. He has quickly made a name for himself in the industry with his soulful vocals and relatable lyrics. While all of his songs are amazing, here are six standout tracks from his discography that you need to hear!
His latest album, 4TH WALL, is a testament to his artistic growth and maturity. With a mix of upbeat pop tracks and emotional ballads, Ruel showcases his vocal range and songwriting skills throughout the album. The album is also a perfect blend of commercial appeal and artistic integrity. After listening to the album, we discovered our favorite song is ‘Japanese Whiskey.’ This track allows his vocals to take center stage as he seemingly sings about the heartache of a relationship falling apart.
‘Distance’ is a heart-wrenching ballad that showcases Ruel’s vulnerability and emotional depth. The stripped-down production allows his vocals to shine as he sings about the pain of being separated from someone he loved.
Another standout track is ‘Hard Sometimes,’ which features a melancholy melody and infectious hook that will get stuck in your head for days. The song deals with the emotional difficulty of being an artist and the life change an artist goes through, showing Ruel’s willingness to tackle important issues such as mental health in his music.
One of Ruel’s most popular songs, ‘Younger,’ is an emotional song that explores the difficulties of friendships when you’re young. The track features heartfelt lyrics and a powerful chorus, making it a standout in Ruel’s discography.
‘Face To Face’
This 2019 release showcases Ruel’s growth as an artist, with a more mature sound and introspective lyrics. The track features a groovy melody and emotive vocals as Ruel sings about one-sided love, essentially putting parasocial relationships under a magnifying glass. Not to mention, there is a saxophone solo—enough said there!
‘Say It Over’
‘Say It Over’ is a dreamy pop track highlighting Ruel’s smooth vocals. The song perfectly illustrates how Ruel’s voice can effortlessly float over any melody, creating a mesmerizing sound.
