Blood Red Shoes – in session for John Kennedy – Radio x – July 24, 2021 – Radio X –
Blood Red Shoes in session tonight recorded for John Kennedy’s program on Radio X and broadcast on July 24th of this year. As the pandemic groans on and the messages continue to be mixed, muddled and contrary, life and music still go on. Maybe it’s not as isolated as it was this time last year, but there is still a goodly degree of caution, and a cause for alarm at least lately. Blood Red Shoes is the kind of band you actually want to hear during a pandemic. Their visceral mashup of Indie/Noise and Shoegaze make for a perfect fit in the current state of emotional drain and the frustration that goes with it.
Further evidence Music has incredible power and the effortless ability to convey emotions that we are sometimes too inarticulate to voice, letting instead the notes do it for us. And Blood Red Shoes have the capable hands to pull it off.
In April 2018 the band released their first new single in nearly a year, “God Complex”, followed by “Call Me Up Victoria” in July. In September 2018, Blood Red Shoes announced their forthcoming fifth album would be called Get Tragic and would be released on their label Jazz Life on 25 January 2019. They released a third single, “Mexican Dress”, along with a full track list and hinted at the difficulties they experienced around the 5th album. The album was made in Los Angeles and produced by Nick Launay and Adam Greenspan (Arcade Fire, Nick Cave, Yeah Yeah Yeahs).
