When we last heard from Blood Red Rose, Somerset’s dark indie superstars, they had just released their stunning debut album, ‘Reflections’. A true hidden gem that delivered original, brooding, and wonderfully quirky indie rock tracks time and time again, the album was a near-perfect aural experience that we haven’t been able to put out of our minds. Now, Blood Red Rose have kicked off the new year with the same fire and tenacity that first brought them to our attention, delivering an evolved indie classic in the form of new single, ‘My Stereo’.
A stellar glimpse into the band’s second album, which is set for release later this year, ‘My Stereo’ sees the band expanding upon their DIY style, blending their uniquely atmospheric sound with some contemporary indie arrangements that will delight and entertain anyone who stumbles upon them.
Opening onto a textured soundscape of quick-stepping percussion, rolling baselines, and sharp guitar chords, ‘My Stereo’ creates an instantly appealing blend of sounds that lingers perfectly on the palette. With subtle shoegaze energy and some classic indie rock vibes, the single sets the stage for frontman Paul’s vocals. Reminiscent of The Cure’s Robert Smith and soaked in waves of sonic brilliance, they complete the song in perfect form, ensuring that ‘My Stereo’ becomes one of the band’s best releases to date.
An immersive release that hits in waves and announces the band’s second album in perfect form, ‘My Stereo’ ends with a titanic crescendo, one that creates an unavoidable wall of sound and completes the Blood Red Rose experience.
Written, recorded and mixed by the band in their own makeshift studio, ‘My Stereo’ is lavish, balanced, and perfectly produced, making it one of our favourite singles of the year so far, and in the end, there’s only one thing left to say; bring on album number two!
You can stream the new track above via Spotify, and be sure to check out the band’s social media pages so you don’t miss the release of the band’s sophomore record later this year.
