Blood Red Shoes Continue To Tease 'Get Tragic' With New Song Howl

Tuesday, 20 November 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Blood Red Shoes have unveiled a new track.

Howl is taken from 'Get Tragic', their fifth LP, which is due out on January 25, with a UK run of dates set to begin the following day and a European tour lined up in February.

The duo will also play the Camden Assembly in London and a hometown show at Brighton's Sticky Mike's in December, giving them a chance to introduce their new live line up, including producer Clarence Clarity and Hannah Thurlow from the band 2:54. 

The new song sees the band out of their comfort zone, incorporating '80s-style synths with their alternative-rock roots to make for a more pop-influenced and danceable track. Guitarist and vocalist Laura-Mary Carter said

“I wrote this in my mum’s kitchen, it’s about realising that everything in life you have to take charge of yourself and not wait around for someone else to do it. When we worked on it we were partying to a lot of 80s Prince and Janet Jackson, and I can hear that influence on it, definitely very new territory for us!”

Imagination Is Key: How The Sheepdogs Are Keeping Rock 'N' Roll Colourful
Wed 31 Oct 2018
It’s virtually impossible to do anything completely new in the realm of rock'n'roll, especially when some of the greatest acts of all time have already pioneered, innovated and explored the genre to its very limits and beyond. Does that mean like-minded young bands should just lazily imitate their predecessors or even give up? Hell, no. They need to follow the example set by the Sheepdogs, write the best songs possible and spice them up with as many stylistic and instrumental flavours as their talents will allow.

Baxter Dury, Étienne De Crécy, Delilah Holiday - B.E.D (Album Review)
Thu 08 Nov 2018
When Baxter Dury picks apart the ironies of the modern day on Only My Honesty Matters, in that deep, cigarette-gravelled voice, the minimalism of the instrumental beneath his rhythmic, spoken word monologue about “having a roll up” and “impotent white obvious people” listening to Florence and the Machine is almost forgivable. Almost.
Swearin' - Fall Into The Sun (Album Review)
Thu 01 Nov 2018
Space can be good, whether it’s allowing us to take a break from people or helping intrigue to blossom in the moments left unfilled in a piece of music. Left to our own devices, we are able to take stock, gain perspective and ultimately grow. It feels like Swearin’, who split in 2015 when guitarists and vocalists Allison Crutchfield and Kyle Gilbride ended their romantic and musical relationship, would back that sentiment.
