Childhood friends, Ruby Haunt (fka Haunt) is an American musical project conceived by Wyatt Ininns and Victor Pakpour sometime in 2015. The duo wrote their first three EPs while in school via opposite ends of the west coast (Los Angeles and Portland), exchanging musical ideas over email. In this time they received support from Nowness, Track + Field Records, C-Heads Magazine, and various tastemaking YouTube channels for their unique songwriting and self-produced music videos.
In 2016 the boys saw a move to L.A. where they wrote their debut LP Sugar, their first written together in a small ocean front house in Laguna Beach, California. Sugar was self-released in October 2016, featuring collaborations with the renowned photographer Henrik Purienne, film duo Wissa for their Roberto Cavali campaign in Vogue Italia, and a critically praised remix by Nutrition released on Majestic Casual Records.
2017 sees the duo busy at work on their next EP titled "Nevada" which will be released on May 31, 2017 and a live show that will tour towards the end of the year.
The duo have cited New Order, Suicide, and Beach House as early musical influences.
