REDWOOD ANNOUNCE DEBUT ALBUM ‘BESIDE A SHALLOW SUN’ 26/08/2020 News 16 REDWOOD ANNOUNCE DEBUT ALBUM ‘BESIDE A SHALLOW SUN’ SET FOR RELEASE NOVEMBER 6TH 2020REVEAL NEW TRACK ‘ATE MY WEIGHT’ REDWOOD announce their debut full-length album ‘BESIDE A SHALLOW SUN’, set for release November 6th 2020 with their lavish new single ‘ATE MY WEIGHT’. Limited edition vinyl bundles are available for pre-ordered directly through the band’s store HERE. ‘BESIDE A SHALLOW SUN’ sees Redwood blurring the lines of genre and creating an ornate and ethereal indie-pop, shoe-gaze soundscape with both depth and heart. Working with long-time collaborator Hamish Dickinson at Phoenix Sound, Nottingham, Redwood’s twelve-track debut is expertly woven together by tales of nostalgia, existentialism and the romanticisation of time passing by. “Lyrically the songs on Beside A Shallow Sun hold many different meanings for me. While writing, I would just sit down and sing what came to mind in that moment. I feel like that’s the most natural process for me when recording vocals. I would often write about things that I hadn’t realised I was feeling until the process began, hiding meaning in metaphors. This record has a very nostalgic throughline where I question myself about the relationships I have formed in my life and how those experiences played out. Being a textbook over-thinker, it’ was therapeutic for me to sing about the things that I had been stressing over and be able to listen back to it in the context of a song.” – Alex Birchall Their latest single ‘ATE MY WEIGHT’ perfectly showcases the band’s ability to pivot from angular math-rock to soaring, anthemic indie, while still retaining authenticity and a clear sense of identity.
