Led by composer and pianist David Moore, Brooklyn instrumental collective Bing & Ruth are a delicate yet formidable melodic force. Combining horns, strings, piano, wordless vocals, and manipulated tape loops, the band builds from still moments to grand cathartic swells. Their latest album, 2014’s critically acclaimed Tomorrow Was the Golden Age, took the organic sounds of live performance in trippier directions, playing with tape delay to achieve a deep well of shimmering sound.
