Blood Red Shoes are set to release their new 'Water' EP on January 21st.
There is always a divide between a band as a studio entity and as a live being. Blood Red Shoes are the perfect example of this, with the duo's studio recordings presenting a carefully considered, refined version of what can be a demented, unhinged live show.
Recently returning with a new album, Blood Red Shoes have decided to head straight back into the studio. Out on January 21st, 'Water' contains three tracks recorded in Dallas, Texas this October by John Congleton and seemingly represents an attempt by the band to capture the immediacy of their live show.
“One of the first times Laura and I actually met was at a show that John Congleton's band The Paper Chase were playing in London 8 years ago,” explains Steven Ansell. “We've known John since then and always been in touch about doing some recording sometime....so we finally made it happen at the end of our recent US tour. We did it super fast down at his studio in Dallas Texas, straight after our last show of the US tour. The songs themselves are some of the most out-and-out rock riffs we've ever written, inspired a lot by driving around the USA and pure badass rock n roll immediacy - they're much looser, faster, and less considered than ‘In Time To Voices’ and we wanted to capture that feeling and not make it too perfect".
