Sky Burns Red Band – Riddle

I’m only a few seconds into this song but I like it already. So far it’s a slowed down track with a dark/sinister kind of groove. I hear a lot of bass, always something that makes me happy. And that guitar is totally awesome. Down and dirty is my favorite guitar style and while it’s a bit sparse it’s really well done when they kick it in.  There is something about this band (maybe the vocals) that makes me think of Telsa back in the day. Man I loved that band, and this guy has that kind of voice. I’m also getting a bit of a Filter feel (also from the vocals). Is that a violin that I’m hearing from time to time? Whatever it is it’s awesome.

I loved this song. It was like a mash up of some of my favorite styles. That violin or whatever it was, was a perfect underscore for the guitar. The vocals were just killing me! Kinda dark, kinda brooding and completely cool. I totally intend to listen to more of their songs and this one is going to go on my phone and my server. I would put this song into a list with some Red, Filter, and AIC.


Who They Are:

From the deepest depths of the Swindon music scene surfaces SkyBurnsRed, an eclectic rock band with a orchestral twist. Although guitar and violin would rarely associate under normal circumstances, the haunting tones of the classical instrument become electrified and entangled in the heavy rock foundations creating the bands striking sound.

In the last year the band have flourished, recording their first official EP, Madness and Reason, at the Vale Studios and regularly featuring on BBC Wiltshire Introducing. The highlight of SkyBurnsRed’s CV is a recent gig at the Indigo2 at London’s o2 arena. This is just one of copious support and headline slots they’ve triumphed across the country and around their local stomping ground of Wiltshire.
