rhubiqs is the solo project of London-based musician Tom Squires.
As rhubiqs Squires creates far-reaching electronic and ambient post-rock sounds inspired by the likes of Mogwai, Caspian, Explosions in the Sky, Jon Hopkins, Bardo Pond and Boards of Canada.
His 2019 EP Motifs in F# Major introduced him as a serious player on the post-rock scene with the lead single racking up thousands of plays across various streaming outlets. The video for Motifs in F# Major premiered on WherePostRockDwells - the world’s largest post-rock YouTube channel - and cemented Squires’ position as one to watch.
1st May 2020 sees the long awaited release of rhubiqs’ debut album: Migratory Paths. On Migratory Paths rhubiqs has further honed his warm, well-rounded sound and has included an astounding post-rock cover of Julee Cruise's haunting song 'Falling'; better known to many as the theme tune to the television series Twin Peaks.
The record also closes with a remix by Mr. Mitch, the London grime-scene stalwart who calls Planet Mu Records his home alongside electronic greats such as Venetian Snares, µ-Ziq, Machinedrum, DJ Rashad and Luke Vibert.

Blown away by this album at first listen - still incredible after all this time. The atmosphere in every track is so immersive, it's like listening to paintings of the wilderness. Outstanding debut, Marcin! fair2mindlin
