The Blood Red Shoes duo of Laura-Mary and Steven hail from Brighton and whilst a hot bed of alternative talent, Blood Red Shoes cobble together something quite different. Laura-Mary belts out the raucous vocals just as if she’s fronting X-Ray Spex and there’s a raw post punk feel to both tracks. “A.D.H.D.” is a broken collection of guitar stabs and fractured arrangements with “Can’t Find The Door” exposing a strong post-rock approach with plenty of off the wall chords, big sweeping crescendos played out on single guitar strings, all bolstered by grinding riffs and heavier rock musings. It’s a collision of styles that shoehorns the fashionable, angry yelps into the frame of rock music, that’s just the right side of gargantuan.
