This week, Blood Red Shoes released Tied At The Wrist – a digital 10-song compilation of all our early 7″ releases before their first album. I came to this band quite late, but I remember buying their first album Box Of Secrets and thinking it was a stunner.
Seeing them play at Shepherds Bush Empire a few years back was one of the best nights of live music I’ve experienced. The memory of this made me root out my copy of their first album today.
‘Take The Weight’ aptly summarises my week. Maybe it’s my new schedule, the change in the weather – or the constant flow of alcohol on the weekends – but something’s left me feeling a bit chewed up. Luckily, Blood Red Shoes are on hand to snap my perspective back in to focus.
