Scarlet Soho’s debut single for Human Recordings, Isolation, is available to buy online at www.human-recordings.com now.
When we look back on the beginning of the 21st Century, what will there be to remember? Music packaged as a product, devoid of artistry and bland beyond belief. In ten years, will there only be competition winners singing on our screens? Should the worst happen, rest assured that you will always be able to tell your grandchildren of the feelings of warmth and love brought to you by a band called Scarlet Soho while all around you collapsed.
Live favourite Isolation is the first single taken from Scarlet Soho’s debut album, to be released this summer. With a chorus so catchy that you’ll be singing it for weeks after just one listen, Isolation sees the band at their absolute finest. Jim’s vocals soar above the music: a perfect mix of electronics, uplifting guitars and pounding drums. And that acoustic guitar on the verse is just stunning in its simplicity. If this doesn’t make you want to dance then you must be dead? or at least very ill.
Taking in influences such as Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode and At The Drive-In, the single was produced by Justin Callaway (The Delays, Reign Of Erebus) and follows a number of high-profile support slots with The Faint, King Adora, Martin Grech and Easyworld.
Backing up the title track are Tried, Tested & Failed – a Scarlet Soho-style ballad – and Useless – another live favourite that quite simply RAWKS! These two aren’t even going to be on the album: that’s how good the album is going to be!
Scarlet Soho’s debut album is due for release this summer.
