Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to RedrumSociety. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify was amazed by their music.
I was very fascinated by the sound of this band. A music that hides a secret, something sinister and mysterious.
The slightly acid sound and the timbre of the voice reminded me in some moments of the Smashing Pumpkins. A rock that takes inspiration from the past but at the same time manages to be modern and innovative.
A melody, especially in the chorus that stays in your head for a long time after listening.
The production is very good and the execution is flawless. A very original compositional that makes the sound of RedrumSociety stand out from the crowd.
A music project to keep under the radar as they produce truly beautiful music.
Stormy Weather is RedrumSociety’s Single Out Now!
Innovative and Real!
A lot has happened to RedrumSociety since originally forming in high school back in 2008, including addiction, legal troubles, and even the passing of one of the original members. The remaining founding member, Zach Cohen, recently relaunched the band after a hiatus that saw the singer and guitarist return to his home state of Florida to concentrate on his sobriety.
The new single ‘Stormy Weather’ was created by Cohen prior to the bands’ new line-up being formed. Having tracked the parts at home, he took the song to producers Brandon Sweeney and Sejo Navajas (Muse, Weezer), and engineer Jose Alcantar at a studio in Santa Monica. With their help, Cohen created an undeniable indie-pop gem, full of layered harmonies, melodic and attacking guitar lines, with violins and timpani lines providing depth. The sound is reminiscent of Supergrass without being derivative, Cohen succeeding in his aim of producing a sound that was mellow, with a hint of aggression.
It is this hint of aggression that reveals the darkness behind ‘Stormy Weather’. Inspired by a verbally abusive relationship that Cohen was in at the time, the song is an honest exploration of how he was being treated at the time. The music provided an outlet to deal with the experience, a coping mechanism that allowed him to take some power back.
