Edinburgh band Redolent have shared their ‘make big money fast online now’ EP in full.
The group match atmospheric electronics to assured indie songwriting, resulting in something potent and unique. Absorbing the influence of Mount Kimbie, say, Redolent also have a thirst for melody, something that gives their work a refreshing openness.
New EP ‘make big money fast online now’ is a discourse in our modern lives, constructed over a three-month span at Post Electric Studios in Leith. The band’s Robin Herbert comments…
“We set out to make something really quickly, as an exercise, to see what would happen with more chaos, if we were less precious and obsessive about the writing process…”
“We tried to be honest about some difficult times with the lyrics, whilst keeping the vibe positive overall, which turned out to be quite tricky. Production wise, we wanted it to go poppier than we had before, but also keep a bit of grit. Hope we got there in the end. It’ll be cool to see how people react to hearing it from start to finish. It feels like the start of a good time.”
Tune in now.
