Band: BLOOD RED SHOES
Who: Alt-rock duo – Laura-Mary Carter and
drummer Steven Ansell – from Brighton UK.
Active since 2004 / 6 studio albums
Ansell: “We’ve always been outsiders right from the very beginning. This album is really about us asserting ourselves as our own little island. We have made an entire career out of being told what we are ‘not’, of being rejected, of not fitting in, and this album is us deliberately pushing into all of our strangeness, emphasising all of the things that make us different. Ultimately this album is an invitation. It’s us saying, this is our world, these are our darkest thoughts and feelings – our ghosts – caught on tape. You are welcome to join us. Come and embrace the strange.”
Turn Up The Volume: The wayward Brighton tandem turn up the heat and decibels
on their new full lenght. From industrial slam dunks to (Morbid Fascination / Murder Me /
Give Up / I Am Not You) high-powered sucker-punch grooves (Comply / Sucker / Loose Whatever I Own) and sensual begging. Like The Horrors rockin’ out, fronted by Garbage‘s Shirley Manson. Blood Red Shoes do what only they like to do on this steamrolling record,
all of you, frenetic rock addicts out there, will like too.
Key singles: Morbid Fascination / Murder Me
