The Rubens are an alternative band from Australia. This song titled “The Best We Got” is my favorite from their self-titled album because of the smooth, delicate piano melody in the very beginning, and because of it’s hard-rock, almost jazzy feel all the way until the end. The lyrics are simple and catchy, and Sam Margin’s voice is just the right amount of swing that’s all kinds of dark and brooding. The song also has amazing orchestral excerpts, which makes it so much better. The Rubens have recieved acclaim for theirs single “My Gun” on Triple J, which means that they’re doing something right. “The Best We Got” is from The Rubens’s first album, which came out in 2012.
