The Deep Red Sky

The Deep Red Sky


Alternative indie band, The Deep Red Sky, released their debut album Plans earlier this year.

Citing the influence of The Twilight Sad and Frightened Rabbit in their development, the band created a sound with introspective characteristics allied with more accessible vocal melodies, the likes of which Arcade Fire, Snow Patrol and Biffy Clyro would be proud of.

Their single, Look On Your Face, encapsulated the band's subtle, yet imposing sound, and brought their luscious vocals to the fore.

Look On Your Face is available to stream on the band's Bandcamp page.

The Scottish 5-piece, consisting of Jamie Craighead (lead vocals, guitar); Jesse Stoddard (keyboard, backing vocals); Jos Collins (guitar, glockenspiel, backing vocals); Scott Cousins (bass) and John Alexander (drums), originally formed as a three piece when Jamie, Scott and John met at Napier University in Edinburgh. With the introduction of Jos and Jesse, the bands sound subsequently progressed as they developed the stunning harmonies and layered, atmospheric epic moments that can found on the album.

Alongside Look On Your Face, album tracks such as 'Getting Easier', 'Plans' and 'You Had it All' are real highlights and truly showcase The Deep Red Sky's writing skills - as well as their ability to create both challenging and eminently listenable tunes.

Plans was the perfect climax to an exciting year for The Deep Red Sky. Beginning with the release of the free download track 'Zombies', following up with single Look On Your Face and completing their first UK tour.

Plans by The Deep Red Sky is available to buy on iTunes.
