Blood Red Shoes

BloodRedShoes_PlanB

I’ve found the perfect summer song: Blood Red Shoes’ “It’s Getting Boring By The Sea.” It’s got it all: an irresistible chorus, pop hooks galore, sugar-spun harmonies and buzzsaw guitars, handclaps —EVEN COWBELL. (I said it had it all, didn’t I?) Blood Red Shoes are the Brighton duo of Steven Ansell and Laura-Mary Carter. Named after a possibly apocryphal tale about Ginger Rogers and her blood-stained dancing shoes, the group craft assured punchy pop songs with an insouciantly edgy charm. While I’m not usually one to succumb to hype (these two are already building some well-deserved buzz in their native UK for their incendiary live shows —you can read all about their tour shenanigans here andhere), it’s summertime and I crave delightfully giddy pop songs as much as the rest of us. I’m also kicking back at the seaside at the moment, so it’s even more apt…

Their debut album is due out soon. Check their MySpace page for updates…
