I saw Red Sea for the first and only time back in December when they played a show at a covert venue in what some might refer to as “Deep Brooklyn” (which really just means that it wasn’t off the L line), and to be totally candid, it was the best show that I saw in 2014. I was in a basement guzzling overpriced ($4) shitty beer and I was loving it because Red Sea — along with their likeminded lineup company Big Neck Police and Palm — are some of the most exciting bands that I’ve heard in a really long time. “On The Marble” is a track off of Red Sea’s full-length In The Salon, which the band put out independently via Bandcamp last year, and will be re-released digitally and on cassette by Bayonet Records in March. The song writhes and splits into pieces before its scatter is reordered by an audibly apprehensive drum beat. Listen below.
In The Salon is out 3/3 on Bayonet.
