Ruler

Ruler's music — hook-heavy, assertive, inspiring — is made for motion. It's a soundtrack for moving forward, for getting better, in terms of both healing and self-improvement. Built on main man Matt Batey's lifelong fears, anxieties, addictions and failures, not to mention his preternatural gift for creating instantly classic indie rock, Ruler's songs follow that old adage by Robert Frost: The best way out is through. And in this case the best way through is with the volume cranked all the way up.
