Red Robot is an alternative rock band from LA with influences from bands like Spoon, Interpol, Radiohead, and Arcade Fire. Our songs are emotional and intellectual : sophisticated in diverse instrumentations (strings, african percussion), genuine in lyricism, and engaging for all types of listeners.

Biography

The name Red Robot is derived from lead singer Andy Studer's childhood drawings. In this respect, Red Robot is a metaphor for love and music in the truest essence. The band was created with his brother Ryan during the summer of 2006, as Andy's prolific songwriting needed an outlet. High school friend Andy Miller joined on bass, and over the next few years they began to perform in venues across the Sunset strip such as The Whiskey, The Key Club, and The Mint. Four years later, both brothers are attending the California Institute of the Arts for degrees in composition (guitarist Aaron Moore has graduated with the same degree), and this has expanded their musical palette by tenfold. Along with their heavier, darker themed rock songs, Red Robot has become well known for their acoustics variations with string quartet, or their performances incorporating electronics such as the APC40 and Ableton Live. You wouldn't be surprised to hear African percussion, choirs, or wind ensembles on their recordings either. While they've released many of their own self-recorded songs such as their popular "Stars Ignite", Red Robot has just recently finished their first official EP "Identification". With their first official EP release ever, they look to expand their already dedicated fan base and possibly tour during the upcoming summer.

Lyrics

My Last Home

Written By: Andy Studer

Yes I understand the troubles which I
have brought to this sullen place.
I lay upon my hospital bed
as death brings me through his race,
so don't you act as if I'm just a fool.
The solace comes when I die.
Say it to yourself again and again:
"better you rather than I"

Yes I've signed all of the contracts and wills,
now I'm nothing but a heartache.
I've been drinking down the colorful pills,
fending off the empty void.
Yes the end of me is coming near,
its brought you and I much closer.
Don't shed any of your tears my love,
I leave without a bitter heart.

Yes I saw the tired colors removed from my soul
Yes I felt my mind consistently losing control
Yes I saw the tired colors removed from my soul
Yes I saw the tired colors removed from my soul

Don't shed any of your tears my love,
I leave without a bitter heart

Eyes Ablaze

Written By: Andy Studer

Demons in my head
The poison in my veins, the poison in my veins
Portrait of my days
You watch me burn in flames, you watch me burn in flames

Empty colors of an apparition
Petty ransoms from a broken home

Desolated thief
Take away my voice, you take away my voice
Feed me all your lies
and leave me for dead, leave me for dead

Empty colors of an apparition
Petty ransoms of a broken home
I can see it running through the sky
Empty anger in the tattered sky

Yeah you left me for dead
for dead
with your lies
Yeah you left me for dead

Stars Ignite

Written By: Andy Suder

Stars ignite upon my hands
Stars ignite, your outline
is all I see, is all I feel
You push me forward
into the night
yet I still breathe your quiet air

My eden's dust becomes my blood
Losing sight of reveries

Pristine lust becomes our ground
Promises become your ruse
Ambivalence becomes my curse

My eden's dust becomes my blood
Losing sight of reveries
My eden's dust becomes my mind
becomes my hope

cause then I see myself inside your light
yeah I see myself inside your light
but then I realize Im not alive
yeah I realize Im not alive
and I see us falling
I hear myself inside your light
yeah I hear myself inside your light
and love dies, love dies, love dies, love dies

It Won't Be Long

Written By: Andy Studer

Feeling tired, hollow conscience
Renovation, don't know where to start
happiness seems far, everyone is outside

Feeling angry, this is just beyond belief
Don't you see we've made it this far?
Happiness won't start without transparent lights

Its gonna be fine, its gonna be fine

Take it slowly, take your life in through a straw
Dissolve discouraging eyes,
encouraging lies in spite of this feeling

You're feeling lonely, your mind is aching
but you know it won't be for long
the progress may be gone, but so is the crying

Its gonna be fine, its gonna be fine
Its gonna be fine, the remedy's outside

This is but a pebble in a sea of stones
This is but a pebble in a sea of stones
There's no need to be alone
