A bit about ‘Eye To Eye’ from Steven Ansell of BLOOD RED SHOES – “ ‘Eye to Eye’ was the first song where we really hit our stride in the writing of the album (‘Get Tragic’), the first time it really fell into place experimenting in a garage in LA with synths and loops instead of guitar riffs. it started life as a jam which we chopped, spliced, slowed down, looped and chopped some more then gradually layered back up using electronics and voices. ”
They will be releasing their hugely anticipated new album ‘Get Tragic’, which features ‘Eye To Eye’ as well as previous singles ‘Howl, ‘Finding My Own Remorse’ and ‘Mexican Dress’, on January 25th 2019, and have a set of launch shows in the UK and Europe in early 2019, including a sold out London Borderline on Sat 26th January. These will also be a perfect chance to catch the new expanded live set up, featuring producer Clarence Clarity and Hannah Thurlow from the band2:54. Support on all dates comes from John J Presley.
