REDWOOD Announce Lay Your Love Down EP
Released 5th October 2018 via Failure By Design Records
Hertfordshire alternative rock band REDWOOD are pleased to reveal the video for their new single ‘Mother’, which is out now via all good digital service providers. The track is the first to be taken from their new EP Lay Your Love Down which is set for release 5th October 2018 via Failure By Design Records.
Alongside the news, the band have announced a short run of special UK headline shows for October 2018 to celebrate the release of their forthcoming EP (see below for dates).
Shot on location at a friend’s house back in their hometown of Hertfordshire, the video was directed and filmed by the band themselves. A typically swirling slab of dreamy emo-laden, post-rock influenced alternative rock, the track is the first glimpse of a leaner and more focused outfit since their recent signing to fast-growing independent label Failure By Design Records.
Commenting on the process, vocalist Alex Birchall said: “With the visuals I wanted to play with different ways of representing emotional baggage, and the ways in which people try to forget or expel past thoughts or feelings. Shooting and editing the video ourselves gave us lots of freedom to experiment with different ideas and have fun while shooting it.
“For me, attempting to capture a vibe or an emotion with a video is just as important as the song itself. So many songs I’ve clicked with have been due to the video drawing me in in the first instance.”
Drawing on influence from a wide range of genres—from emo to post-rock—Redwood combine delicate melodies and thought provoking lyrics with intricate, shimmering guitars and powerful choruses with explosive endings. On record they’re nothing short of impressive, but the live show is where this band truly shines; energetic, atmospheric, bold and emotionally powerful.
Since releasing their debut EP Blood Moon (2016) the band have released standalone single ‘Night Garden/Aster’ (2017) and appeared on stage with the likes of From Indian Lakes, Totorro, Fish Tank, Ducking Punches, Sam Duckworth (Recreations) and Decade to name but a few.
They have been championed on Kerrang! Radio by new music Demogorgon Alex Baker, and received critical acclaim from some of the best-known and most-respected alternative music publications, including UPSET, DORK, Punktastic, and many more.
The band will be revealing further live dates and new music over the coming months.
