Scottish four-piece Redolent have made their long awaited return through the release of fierce new single I Thought They Were Just Fireworks.
Redolent are constantly evolving their uncompromising brand of electro-rock with each and every song. Having garnered acclaim for the early 2018 single Dantercepies, taking inspiration from the likes of Holy Fuck and Battles, they gained support from the likes of Clash Magazine and The Skinny.
Redolent have delivered yet another ambitious release. Written about a recurring nightmare involving a mass shooting, I Thought They Were Just Fireworks is an intense track, both sonically and lyrically, that steps into post-hardcore territory and recalls artists such as Glassjaw and At The Drive-In.
Comprised of Robin Herbert (vocals, guitar, keys), Robbie White (bass, keys), Danny Herbert (guitar, keys) and Andrew Turnbull (drums), Redolent were formed in 2012. The band became a fixture on the Scottish music scene with BBC Radio Scotland’s Vic Galloway, Amazing Radio, M Magazine and The National taking note of their distinctive sound. Known for their electric live performances, Redolent have supported We Were Promised Jetpacks as well as taking the stage at T In The Park and Belladrum festivals.
I Thought They Were Just Fireworks is out now.
