The Rua – “Fight For What’s Right”

Song du jour.

The group is The Rua, three classically trained siblings with Irish roots who all live in the same house near Windsor, England.  Their debut album will be released  later this year. is available now.

They’ve been called an “indie version of bands like Fleetwood Mac and The Cranberries and the kind of band that hits the Coldplay/Snow Patrol nerve before you’ve even gotten as far as their exceptional choruses.”   I get echoes of the lush romanticism of the 90s band The October Project, which was the soundtrack of my life for quite a few months.

Interesting little factoid:  Among the three of them, the members of The Rua have made seven appearances in the Harry Potter films.
