Forming in February 2011, THE RUBENS are a four piece blues and soul band from a small town south of Sydney, Australia. Taking influences from The Black Keys, The Rolling Stones and the Jimi Hendrix Experience among others. The band is composed of Margin brothers namely Sam, Elliot and Zac Margin (vocals/guitar, keys and lead guitar, respectively), along with childhood friend Scott Baldwin on drums. 

The band landed a big hit on their own country's charts last year with their ridiculously catchy, gritty and mournful blues-soul single "My Gun". The track was voted the 10th-most popular song in the Triple J Hottest 100 and propelled the band's self-titled debut album to gold status. Watch the music clip here:
