Are The Rubens The New Aussie Icons?

Well to start off with, there isn’t really a lot of background needed, you’ve heard of The Rubens; to say that these boys have shot into the limelight is an understatement, but while it’s okay to have a bit of national pride when some of our own to well on the world stage, are we taking it to far?

The Rubens

Let’s take a look at some common lines you’re likely to read in a review of The Rubens:

“Hailing from the tiny New South Wales town of Menangle.”  – Indie Shuffle

“An ittie-bittie buzz band from country NSW.” – Purple Sneakers

So much swag in that soulful voice of The Rubens lead singer. It definitely makes them stand out and pose as serious competitors to the Aussie music podium.

In fact, the only review I’ve found so far with no reference to how The Rubens rose to greatness out of a small country town was on Faster Louder . However, they seem to be coping with the pressure well if their recent interview with The Music was anything to go by.

They’re a great band with a promising future, let’s not get their nationality get in the way of their music.
