Formed in the closing days of 2019, Blood Red Rose wasted no time in filling their hometown of Wincanton with dark indie vibes. A talented trio breathing new life into a timeless blend of electric guitars, sing-along hooks and stomping drums, they first rose to prominence with the release of their debut album ‘Reflections’, and ever since then they’ve been working hard to push their sound all across the world. With work on their sophomore album well underway, we thought it was only right to spend some time looking back at the critically acclaimed tracks that made ‘Reflections’ so good, and so for our latest feature, we’re diving into the shifting melancholy world of ‘Come On’.
Written, recorded, produced, and mixed by the band in their own makeshift studio, ‘Come On’ is the closing track from Blood Red Rose’s debut album, and while it might sound like the last hurrah, it’s easily one of their most accomplished and affecting tracks to date. A song that perfectly illustrates the band’s immersive sound, everything about ‘Come On’ is built to elicit an emotive response, looking deep into the heart and soul of every listener and ensuring that everyone will find some solace in the ruminating tones.
A triumphant return to textured indie anthemics and dark, exploratory tones, ‘Come On’ is an untapered flourish of lo-fi indie sounds that promises the world and delivers easily, and if you’re not hooked after just one listen, then there is clearly something wrong. A brilliant track that is open to interpretation and endlessly enjoyable, ‘Come On’ is a fine and beautiful balance between weight, power, and unyielding musical abilities.
While a strong track in its own right, it’s also the perfect closing number for the album, and it’s best experienced as such, so don’t wait, and get stuck in today. You can find ‘Come On’ on Spotify below, along with the rest of the band’s full debut record.
Best described as a true labour of love, ‘Reflections’ proves that the rough and ready indie rock of the early 2000s is still going strong today, and while their style might be fiercely modern, there’s a gorgeous timeless quality that shines through perfectly.
Make sure you follow the band on Facebook and Instagram below and keep your eye out for the release of their highly anticipated sophomore record.
