Redolent return with new single ‘I Thought They Were Just Fireworks’
Scottish four-piece Redolent have made their long-awaited return as they prepare to release the brooding new single I Thought They Were Just Fireworks prior to Christmas.
Unashamedly experimental, creating an often hypnotic sound, Redolent is an adjective that perfectly describes the creative output of the band. Straddling the line between aggressive electronica and melancholic orchestral notes.
Redolent are constantly evolving their uncompromising brand of electro-rock with each and every song. Having garnered acclaim for the early 2018 single Dantercepies, gaining support from the likes of Clash Magazine and The Skinny, Redolent have delivered yet another ambitious release.
Written about a recurring nightmare involving a mass shooting, I Thought They Were Just Fireworks is an intense track, both sonically and lyrically, that sits favourably alongside artists such as Holy Fuck, Liars and Battles.
Comprised of Robin Herbert (vocals, guitar, keys), Robbie White (bass, keys), Danny Herbert (guitar, keys) and Andrew Turnbull (drums), Redolent were formed in 2012. The band became a fixture on the Scottish music scene with the likes of BBC Radio Scotland’s Vic Galloway, Amazing Radio, M Magazine and The National taking note of their distinctive sound. Known for their electric live performances, Redolent have supported We Were Promised Jetpacks as well as taking the stage at T In The Park and Belladrum festivals.
