I first saw Blood Red Shoes at Club Motherfucker, drunk. We were standing at the back. Someone from The Mighty Boosh was presenting the bands - the atmosphere was fantastic. In true fashion, we tried to ignore Blood Red Shoes because they were the support act and we’d come to see Pink Riot anyway. As soon as they walked onstage they grasped our attention; they grasped everyone’s attention.
Blood Red Shoes are a two-piece. Bands that come to mind are a stronger style of Long Blondes with The Subways’ deliciously British accented vocal style, reminding of the classical days of the art of the groupie, namely mod groupies. Emphasis here is on the word style; the pair photograph as well as they sound.
In A-side ‘A.D.H.D.’, the drum-guitar/boy-girl-vocals combinations work harmoniously; they go places together. B-side ‘Can’t Find The Door’ recalls Kings of Leon briefly, but keeps the thematic edge.
