Intense Brighton, UK art rockers Blood Red Shoes create powerful music with only the most essential elements, combining raw guitar riffs and drum hits for a “crisp and unadorned” sound.

The duo, started in 2005 and made up of Laura-Mary Carter and Steven Ansell, have a new album coming out on October 19th in the U.S. on V2 Records and it’s aptly called Fire Like This.

The album, which they see as both a progression and a paring down, brings the dynamic pair back to their DIY/punk roots.  Laura-Mary says, “We’re in control again. And I can tell you, right now is the most happy I’ve been about anything to do with this band.”
