Born Ruffians

Toronto-based indie pop-rock outfit Born Ruffians came up in the mid-2000s, a special time for indie rock music that some might even call the golden era of that nebulous genre. Like the Shins, the New Pornographers, the Decemberists or any number of indie bands who rose to prominence during the era, there’s a deceptively simple aspect to Born Ruffians’ cheeky and warm-hearted music. The songs are endlessly relatable and replayable. Even so, their tight compositions, and the layers of craft the dedicated listener will discern therein, attest to the fact that these songs weren’t necessarily as effortless to make as they are to enjoy. Catch Born Ruffians this weekend as the band comes through supporting its fifth LP, Uncle, Duke & The Chief, which came out early this year. To preview the new album, or anything else in the band’s charming catalog, head on over to bornruffians.bandcamp.com.
