The Brooklyn-based electro-art rock ensemble Rubycon just premiered the captivating and visually dynamic new music video for their new single "Buku Love" on Atwood Magazine. The video stars Rubycon frontman Ian Turner and artist Ana Ratner as two figures trapped in a kaleidoscope of colors and the unending cycle of a relationship, all in rhythm with the bouncy beats and entrancing synth sound of Rubycon. "Buku Love" was written and directed by Crichton Atkinson, filmed in Bushwick by award-winning Director of Photography Rick Seigel, and animated by director and filmmaker Ace Salisbury (Everythings OK).

Born out of wedlock to a stargazing artist and a musician living in his van, Ian Hafiz Turner was raised in Woodstock NY, where he played music less as a pastime than as a means of subsistence. Music was for him an escape from the trappings of a world where masculinity and femininity were at odds with one another. In 2014, he formed RUBYCON, a genre-bonding, electro-art rock ensemble, employing synths, strings, and lush falsetto vocals over bouncy dance beats. The band was formed with the intention of creating expansive shamanic experiences for audiences, sparking revolution in their hearts by exploring gender, sex, morality and the human spirit. Rubycon's influences include Bjork, Prince, and Bowie, to whom they bravely cry, "I'm a blackstar."
Rubycon is a synth based electro art rock ensemble from Brooklyn, NY, founded in 2014. Their music morphs from tropical sci-fi to gothic futurism, over a bed of bouncy dance beats. Melodic falsetto vocals deliver witty lyrics, sometimes profound, often humorous. Their show is wild enough to make wallflowers dance, so get dressed to revel in your most outlandish finery!
