Reuben and the Dark “weightlessness”

Reuben and the Dark has released a new video for “weightlessness” which finds him giving something back to the skate community. The track is off current release UN | LOVE.

Reuben on “weightlessness:”

“I wanted to make a video that felt light,” says Bullock. “Riding a skateboard has kept me young, and my relationship with Darcy over the years has had such a positive affect on my life. I wanted to capture those two things. Darcy was my little brother with Big Brothers and Big Sisters, and 13 years later, we’re still close.

Skateboarding has been a teacher, learning to smile through pain. Push past fear. I’ve taken many lessons and feel like I owe it so much in return. “weightlessness” is a small gift back to a culture that has given me so much; friends, community, confidence, and individuality. And I’m always just looking for an excuse to get on a board.”

UN | LOVE was produced by Reuben and the Dark with Marcus Paquin (The National, Timber Timbre, Local Natives) and Kevin Drew (of Broken Social Scene), un | love evokes the raw emotion of the songs with anthemic, atmospheric sound. In comparison to the polished songs of Arms of a Dream, the new album shows a drastic turn in Reuben’s ease as a writer and freedom as a recording artist. His voice is at once unbridled and fallible. Through the dense imagery of his poetry shines a light shot straight from Reuben’s soul.
