FOLLOWING their signing to Columbia Records, Edinburgh group Redolent have shared their debut EP ‘make big money fast online now’.

Featuring recent singles such as ‘Space Cadet’ and ‘extreme mood swings’, the collection is a real mark of individuality – pairing their appreciation of electronic and club culture tropes with indie songwriting. Taking influence from a range of artists like King Krule, LCD Soundsystem, Clairo and Talking Heads, they use the project to test a host of new styles and textures, pushing the boundaries of what they can achieve as a band – and it makes for an immersive and affecting listen. It’s one defined by candid lyrics, poppy hooks, skeletal beats and experimental flourishes.

Today’s focus track is ‘Death in the Family’ – an exploration of grief against arcade-like synths, persistent beats and a building chorus. Channelling the xx in its hushed vocals and minimalist feel, it’s full of atmosphere and a hazy state of grief. The video below ties everything together nicely.

With a slot at The Great Escape 2023 already confirmed, it’s set to be a big year for Redolent as they prepare to hit the road again.
