Ghosts Of Social Networks – Love Potion

art gosn_RingMasterReview

A dark seduction for the senses and a provocative adventure for the imagination, Love Potion is the debut single from UK band Ghosts Of Social Networks. It is not always easy to spark real attention with your first offering on unsuspecting ears, but the Manchester outfit certainly have no trouble with their magnetic fusion of post punk, indie rock, and neo-psychedelia.

Produced by Gavin Monaghan (Editors, Scott Matthews, Robert Plant, Paolo Nutini), the song is a dark tale of unrequited love and the use of alcohol as a way of getting close to someone. Embraced by a potent emotive exploration; its provocative narrative is more than match by thick waves of sultry and haunting sound which wash imposingly yet engagingly over the senses. With bold textures and lingering sonic caresses, the track openly bears the band’s inspirations from the likes of The National through to The Jesus & Mary Chain, with Echo & The Bunnymen the overriding scent especially when melodies and harmonies entangle and fuzzily smoulder in a fiery seduction. Despite those colours, the song reveals a distinct character belonging to the band, one which greedily enthrals as it sublimely slips into the psyche.

Love Potion is one half of an AA sided offering; its companion Mockingbirds, a similarly dark and provocative proposal looking at those imitating celebrity culture rather than carving out their own identity. The first side of the single is our first glimpse at Ghosts Of Social Networks though, providing a mystique soaked romancing of ears and imagination within a tempest of emotion and instinctive adventure from a band already suggesting they are going places.

Love Potion/Mockingbirds will be released digitally through all major sites May 6th on Integrity Records (INT 054).

Rose Redd unveils new video‏

Rose Redd is a beautiful contradiction. Eighteen years in age but unfathomably older in soul, her music has its roots in darker days, experiences, and stories and finds its bloom in both release and connection.

Equally at home with a stirring acoustic vibe or midnight pop, her poignant verses and explosive choruses let you know that she makes music because she has to.

Following the release of her debut single  “Perfectly Useless” comes its stunning video.

Born in the sleepy British seaside town of Eastbourne, at six months old Redd relocated with her family to the West Midlands.

She was raised on a varied musical diet of everything from Ella Fitzgerald to Iron Maiden to Kate Bush, greedily consuming it all.

At the tender age of twelve she first found a kindred spirit in Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore, whose lyrics spoke to her as a troubled young woman and gave her the inspiration to pick up a guitar for the first time and explore songwriting as a means of expression.

She’s come a long way since portraying a singing sunflower in a kindergarten play. Along with touring and gigging extensively she has been working on her first single with producer Gavin Monaghan, known for his work with Editors, Scott Matthews, and Robert Plant, among others.

Gavin said, “Redd is a rare talent, an artist who effortlessly transcends genres and makes you feel like you’ve known her forever.”

“Perfectly Useless” is a bewitching contrast of radio-friendly pop with lyrical themes of emotional rawness and yearning.
