Blood Red Shoes – ‘Water EP’:
The EP was recorded in Texas in October with producer John Congleton. Announcing ‘Water’, Steven Ansell of the band said:
One of the first times Laura and I actually met was at a show that John Congleton’s band The Paper Chase were playing in London eight years ago. We’ve known John since then and always been in touch about doing some recording sometime….so we finally made it happen at the end of our recent US tour. We did it super fast down at his studio in Dallas, Texas straight after our last show of the US tour.
The songs themselves are some of the most out-and-out rock riffs we’ve ever written, inspired a lot by driving around the USA and pure badass rock ‘n’ roll immediacy – they’re much looser, faster, and less considered than ‘In Time To Voices’ and we wanted to capture that feeling and not make it too perfect.
‘Water EP’ will be released on 21 January, to coincide with two new live dates:
21 – Norwich Arts Centre
22 – Shepherd’s Bush Empire, London
