"The self-titled full length follows our first singles which were released last year to overwhelming support and acclaim. Noisey dubbed our debut track as "Sophisti-Pop" and NY Magazine's Vulture said it is "just so right". We've been lucky enough to have continued praise from additional tastemakers such as DIY, The Line of Best Fit, and The 405 among others. The support for the first two singles sent them both into the top ten of the HypeMachine charts. We're keeping the momentum going with the release of our debut album.
Our album has the obsessive intimacy of bedroom recordings while aspiring to the west-coast pop/R&B of the late 70s and early 80s. This sound came out of necessity for us. We began collaborating from our apartment studios in Toronto in the spring of 2016; Nick had recently parted ways with his long-term girlfriend and Dan suffered a concussion that confined him to a room for a year. As a natural progression, we started exploring themes of emotional alienation and fear of intimacy."
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
