Introducing: The Deep Red Sky
The Deep Red Sky is an Edinburgh quintet with a sound that ranges from urgent folk rock to indie anthems. The expansive sound features three-part harmonies, guitars, percussion, keyboards and, of course, a glockenspiel. The band is on the brink of releasing Plans, their debut album. To whet our appetite, they have released "Zombies (Things Don't Stay The Same)". I think the track ably demonstrates the richly textured music this band can produce. If the rest of the album follows form, it could be one of the sleepers of the year.
The members of the band are Jamie Craighead, Jesse Stoddard, Jos Collins, Scott Cousins and John Alexander. They are unsigned.
