Biography

Red Electrick is a band with a genuine love of music. With many elements at play in their collective sound, it’s safe to say that their passion is fuelled as much by the bluesy swagger of 70s rock as it is by punk’s needle-sharp guitar angst, the bittersweet skanked-up rhythms that the 2-Tone era revelled in and an indie frame of mind. Now add a dash of Mediterranean sunshine to it all and you’re ...pretty much on the mark.

The five-man line-up that is Red Electrick has been firing up crowds in recent years with a brace of singles that also propelled the band to the forefront of the music scene. Of course, their success was boosted even further thanks to the band’s charged live performances, much talked-about events that never fail to deliver the goods whether they’re unplugged or not. And in case the music isn't in your face enough, the video for their deeply infectious Who the heck is REK single packs more punches than a Rocky flick!

What makes the band work so well is most likely to do with the artistic diversity of its individual members. Not only do they bring a variety of musical influences to the table, they’re all pretty different characters too, which usually comes in handy when it comes to igniting their creative spark. The band’s debut album, Vine Lady is a fine example of just how different, yet consistently effervescent Red Electrick can be; small wonder then that it has been critically acclaimed as a firm stepping stone for this band that is simply brimming with energy and enthusiasm…
