Sydney progressive metal quartet Red Sea are at it again with their brutal new single, The Score which is out now!
A departure from their heavy-groove single The One earlier in 2019, The Score is a full-tilt, heavy, angry, tasty, metal track. Red Sea are clearly growing as a band and their sound is developing with this fourth track from Producer Clayton Segelov.
The Score is a song of defiance and victory. Lyricist and frontwoman Bowron says that originally the lyrics were inspired by the #metoo movement. But this quickly expanded to include broader references when the horror of the Trump family separation policy unfolded and resistance to the Greta Thunberg-led movement for climate change action became apparent. “It’s just time,” says Bowron, “the old regimes of bullying, self-serving, money-at-all-costs leadership from the likes of Trump, Weinstein, Murdoch and even Morrison in Australia are cracking at the seams. They’re doing some serious damage on their way out, but I think they’re just becoming irrelevant. The youth-led global movement of sustainability, inclusiveness and just simple bloody respect is growing. It’s a simple concept – you treat people like shit for long enough and they’ll eventually bite back. Well, they’re biting back.”
Red Sea will embark on a run of mainly regional East Coast shows to support The Score release.
