Today sees the release of Scarlet, the new album from Spanish sludge rock trio Rosy Finch. The band originally formed in Alicante (Spain) circa 2013, featuring members of Pyramidal (Lluís Mas) and doom metal act Hela (Mireia Porto) and Elena García. Their take on the stoner genre is a furious and eclectic blend of influences ranging from Sonic Youth to the Melvins, showcasing brooding & atmospheric vocals laced with insidious and heavy riffs. Rosy Finch breaks out of the mould and take the listeners on a completely different path than the one usually expected from a band of this genre.
After a year of composing the album, Porto was intent on creating a concept album with the colour red being the central theme.
“Scarlet is about aspiring to be more and to do more. It’s about the idea that nothing will remove the pain, but nothing can detain you. Red has always represented danger, lust, sin, guilt, blood…” Says Mireia.
Each song on Scarlet has a red type colour in the title and represents different stories of different people (from fantasy to the real life) always ranging from love to violence.
Scarlet, the second full length album and the fourth release from the band was recorded and mixed at Red Records Studio and Surnia Records with mastering handled by scene legend Billy Anderson.
Although the album was recorded with the original line-up, 2019 did bring on a change with Oscar Soler (Domo, Pyramidal) and Juanjo Ufarte (Grajo, The Dry Mouths) taking over bass and drums duties for live shows and future recordings.
The album is heavier and sludgier than their previous releases and contains plenty of screams, melodic vocals, metal drums and dirty bass lines.
Its dark and it’s Scarlet Red.
