Review : Red Vanilla

Red Vanilla

Dundee’s alternative rockers, Red Vanilla, have truly laid the groundwork for their musical career with the release of their impressive debut EP, “Days Of Gray”

The EP is a dynamic collection of impassioned and pounding tracks, showcasing the band’s emotional depth and musical prowess. With their finely crafted sound, honed through years of live performances alongside acts like Pulled Apart By Horses and fellow Scots, Fatherson, Red Vanilla are poised to secure prominent slots across the country very soon.

Kicking off with beautiful soaring vocals and harmonies from Vocalist and rythym guitarist Annie Forsyth in opener, “Embers” the EP invites listeners into the band’s adventurous sonic landscape. From the explosive choruses of lead single “All These Better Things” to the fist-pumping post-rock crescendos of “Oria”  Red Vanilla deliver a compelling musical journey.

The production is polished and pristine, showcasing a blend of ’90s-inspired pop hooks and captivating vocals. Yet, it’s the quieter moments found in tracks like “Velvet” and “Detach” that truly highlight the band’s versatility, offering moments of introspection amidst the EP’s energetic fervour.

Overall, “Days Of Gray” establishes Red Vanilla as a band to watch in 2024, with this solid debut sure to attract attention when it’s released on the 7th June

Fans can catch Red Vanilla live at a special hometown EP release show at Beat Generator in Dundee on  6th July 2024.
