I must admit when I saw the name of this band in my inbox I thought this may just be another indie band of which there are hundreds out there these days. I am very happy to say I was completely and utterly wrong!!!

First of all, there is nothing indie or generic about this band. Scarlett Parade is a blues rock duo who originate from the Isle of Man. The band is made up of Adam Jones and Geoffrey Tinkler, both 24 years old and currently living in London.
This duo has so much talent not only in the song writing department but they can also play multiple instruments; a brilliant skill to have in an era where bands are known more for their vocal skills rather than their actual musical ability.
It is hard to compare them to any other band or artist because of their unique sound so the best thing to do is to listen to their songs and make your own mind up.
Their debut ep was released last Feb and it is a great showcase of their talent and is definitely worth a listen. Here is one of my favourite tracks from the ep called “I don’t need your love” which is a brilliant example of blues rock meets ballad.
One thing I really like about this ep is that there is a song for everyone. If you aren’t a fan of the slower ballads and you prefer something with a more rockier beat then the heavier sounds of ”Black as the sun” may be one for you. This ep is great for picking songs to match your mood at the time.
But, whether you like the heavier beats of rock or the smoother more mellower tones of blues this is not a band to miss. Having already supported bands such as Kid Rock and artists such as Corinne Bailey Rae they are sure to breakthrough with their unique sound which is completely different from the generic indie and r and b songs which are filling our airwaves.

I don’t need your love is the first of five songs on Scarlett Parade’s debut EP. The song begins as a slow moving piano piece that is soothing and ambient and delivered with utter perfection. The teasing opening soon switches up the pace into a jazz-sounding rhythm with faultlessly constructed electric guitar riffs, coupled with equally impressive vocals to top off an all-round excellent song.
The second song, March Of The Fallen, again begins slowly and even stronger than the first track with strong vocals, including flawless falsetto notes and intriguing lyricism. For me, songs that stick to a perpetual format usually become dull and irksome to listen to, however the vocals are strong enough to carry the song through and aid it in maintaining its alleviating, yet ear-gripping appeal.
Time Ain’t Come Around is the third song of the EP and starts with an upbeat jazzy feel which is delicately crafted by the underlying piano rhythm coupled with some steady drums. The perpetuity of the guitar rhythm also contributes to this funky piece. The vocals are, yet again, impossible to criticize but the band almost delves into the danger of the piece, becoming messy as the business of the instrumentality can almost be distracting. However, the song is great and clearly demonstrates the versatility of the band.
Track four, Billie, returns back to the slow opening piano piece which I have begun to relish as I feel the band is at its strongest with this kind of song. The deep sounding guitars really add atmosphere to the piece as do the electric solo’s. It gives it an edgy and epic feel which contrasts with the soft nature of the piano and is completely captivating and works wonderfully. Yet again, I am impressed.
The fifth and final song of the EP, Black as the Sun, opens with a completely new vibe with rapid paced electric riffs that sound dark and grungy coupled with fiery and heavy drums. The vocals embrace the conventional distorted rock sound and the song actually sounds like it’s been delivered by a different band. The band here again demonstrates a lot of musical talent and the musicality and versatility of the band cannot be questioned. Despite the musical fluency displayed, I feel it is important for bands to avoid changing their style drastically as each band needs an audience and a drastic style change can be jeopardizing in terms of identification.
Overall, the five track EP is overwhelmingly impressive as it I don’t need your love is the first of five songs on Scarlett Parade’s debut EP. The song begins as a slow moving piano piece that is soothing and ambient and delivered with utter perfection. The teasing opening soon switches up the pace into a jazz-sounding rhythm with faultlessly constructed electric guitar riffs, coupled with equally impressive vocals to top off an all-round excellent song.

From the second you hear the opening piano bars of the track “I Don’t Need Your Love,” you know that this debut Scarlett Parade album is going to be something totally different. And when the song breaks into it’s full throated soulful cry, you know you are not wrong, by a long way.
Not often enough does an album really draw you in nowadays. This one is truly a grandiose statement combining the traditionally emotional celtic vocal sounds, made world-famous by the likes of U2, Simple Minds, The Proclaimers and The Waterboys, with the profound rock foundation of Led Zeppelin, Nirvana and Pearl Jam. All Played out, mainly using piano driven riffs and hooks, solely led by the haunting voice of Geoffrey Tinkler. Unique, to say the least.
The lyrics are intelligent, the vocals expressive, and the sound original, often stripped to the bare essentials and never overproduced. Letting the music breathe comfortably.
Songs like “March Of The Fallen” strongly demonstrate Scarlett Parade’s deepest love and passion for the art they produce and the messages they transmit. What comes across first and foremost throughout the music, is the honest emotion and atmosphere, ever-present in their interpretations. The sound is organic and almost tangible, overtly because the live-sounding mix on the album seems to place the listener in the same room as the band performing live.
“The Time Ain’t Coming Around” showcases the duo’s ability to work their way around groovy timeworn rhythms and piano hooks, without ever loosing that modernistic, state-of-the-art roots appeal. This is partly due to Geoffrey Tinkler’s passionate, but easy off-the-cuff singing, while he and Adam Jones just let the grooves flow and grow in a rather understated way, rather than explicitly driving it’s tempo to the limit.
“Billie” prepares to warm-up the rock engines with some earnest electric six-string riffs, leading Scarlett Parade into the album’s outright rock opus, “Black As The Sun.” The track has strong psychedelic overtones and sounds as if it could easily have come off classic, late 60's albums by Cream or The Jimi Hendrix Experience.
Once again, on this closing track, this unusual rock duo manage to engrave a personal contemporary feel to the song, maintaining their appealing, state-of-the-art, roots sound.
Our advice is to get this debut album by Scarlett Parade, relax on a sofa or on an isolated beach somewhere in the world and listen, it will feed your soul and warm your spirit.
