Indie act Haiva Ru blends pop and rock elements to draw up her wistful single “Work It On Out.” The pseudonym of Allie Merrill, Haiva Ru combines clear-cut guitar lines, glittery synths, and affecting lyricism to drive the track home. “Work It On Out” centers on a relationship set in unbalance, where emotion is met with stoicism in an unending cycle. Merrill’s use of repetition does not go unnoticed, enacted as a means of emphasis while her story gradually unravels. It might take a few plays to let the emotional depth sink in, but the track is well worth every listen. Take Haiva Ru’s “Work It On Out” for a spin below.
