Redhead – Broken Hourglass – SHARPCD21119 – Available 30/04/2021 https://www.flickniferecords.co.uk/store/cds-2/457-redhead-broken-hourglass
Formed in 2013 by Frontman Ellis Crewe-Candy, Redhead set out to deliver great, original rock’n’roll music for everyone.
This desire fed into the heart of the Redhead live experience, which brought performance and well-crafted songs to engaged audiences.
The aim remains, and years of gigging and occasional line-up changes have helped craft and hone the Redhead sound into what it is today, and this is what is presented on their debut album:
Ten studio tracks from this Hampshire based dirty classic rock five-piece take the listener on a fulfilling audio journey; from in-your-face opener, ‘Devil on your Shoulder’, through reminiscent tracks such as ‘Girl’ and ‘Ghost Train’ (where the band openly acknowledge their many influences), to the climatic and soaring closer of ‘Last Chance’.
This long-awaited collection showcases the strength of Redhead songs, as the band explores staples from their live set via Sunshine Corner Studios’ creative recording and mixing environment.
Big on sound, with that nostalgic old school analogue feel, (Reel to Reel mastered at Embassy Studios).
This album delivers what a debut promises; hooky songs, honed over years, that’ll be running around your head for time to come.
Prepare to become a fan…
