Not many artists can claim having established a highly sophisticated take on their sound and style with only two tracks to their name. Sydney’s own Ruby Fields unleashed her powerfully honest, hook-laden take on grunge-pop last year, storming to the heights of Aussie music stardom.

Now, the guitar-wielding songwriting force has announced the release of her upcoming debut EP,  ‘Your Dad’s Opinion For Dinner’, unveiling the incredible lead single ‘Ritalin’, premiered on triple j last night. The blistering rock track is drenched in the nostalgia and sentiment of the ’90s, recounting her time working in a chemist as a “check out chick”.

“It basically follows my first job working as a chemist check-out chick and the people I encountered, how I hated clubbing – bar one Shire staple spot – and loved going to the pub with my old man,” says Ruby.

Your Dad’s Opinion For Dinner is out this Thursday, March 1st.
