Utter insanity. In all the right ways, Redondo Red delivers a manic track with his latest release, “Call It.” The music video is no less nuts, taking heavy inspiration from the works of the late, great Hunter S Thompson and the film Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas.
Beyond these surface influences, Redondo Red is an absolute original. An oppressive, bass-guitar strum, strutting like a drunken, club-footed drifter down Fremont street, guides you along. Vocals here are all about the spectacle, mixing unorthodox performance with simple, but impactful lyrics. Punctuated like disjointed thoughts after a weekend-long bender, the words work to get you deep into the mindset of the song. Somewhere between a whisper and a shout, Redondo Red makes great use of his singular vocal ability, dipping even lower at times into a gravelly growl. If you’ve ever lost a night in a blur of alcohol, sickly-yellow dance-floor lights and too many strange faces, you’ll know exactly what this song is about. Relive your wildest, but fondest drunken memory with this strange but infinitely enjoyable track! Stream it below, and tell us what you think on social media at: @gasmaskmagazine.
