Free Download: New Rockets – “In The Red”

19 Jan

We’ve only ever been to Exeter once, for a wedding, many many years ago. It seemed like quite a pleasant little city but we didn’t have a chance to check out any local musical talent whilst there. Even if we had, we wouldn’t have seen New Rockets play as this fresh faced young band are only just out of university and back then would most likely have still been painting pictures with chopped up bits of potato and pulling girls hair. Now though, bandmates Tudor Davies, John Kilpatrick, George Pavis and Fred Shi have put those care free days behind them and are now making music, rather than paper plate decorations with little bits of pasta and glitter stuck to them.

The guys debut track, “In The Red”, has a very laidback, Red Hot Chili Peppers vibe going on. Think Californication via Exeter; Exeternication if you will. It’s a very congenial song with the kind of chorus that doesn’t feel intrusive in the slightest but ends up being hummed or whistled a few hours later. We like it.

You can listen to “In The Red” below and the band have made it available for download on their Soundcloud page should you like it too.

    yes, you can really hear the Chilies in the strumming, in a nice way, not in that Lady Gaga totally steal way.
