Speed is the debut single from Ruth Mac. Co-produced by Alex Di Camillo, the track has a laid back surf rock vibe akin to acts like Soccer Mommy but with a more upbeat feel.
Mac’s vocal is earthy and soft as she sings the catchy chorus hook and tells a story of compromise within a new relationship in the verses. Opening the narrative with “I like speed”, the statement immediately catches the listener’s attention and sparks the urge to listen more intently and delve into the lyrics of the song.
On writing her debut single, Mac said, “Speed is a stream of thought that teases out a recognition of difference and the place of compromise in close relationships.”
Currently working on her debut EP and set to play some Irish shows later this year, we’re excited to hear more from Ruth Mac!
