Edinburgh band Redolent release new song on Columbia Records

Edinburgh-based experimental quintet Redolent released their new single ‘Extreme Mood Swings’ this week; an honest and smart electronic pop song that the band simply describes as “pretty mentally sound”.

Lead vocalist Robin Herbert’s muffled vocals, paired with a smooth, driving drum beat and Redolent’s distinctive production, take the listener on an exciting sonic journey.

Lyrically, the song is a brutally honest and relatable portrait of those times in our lives that we can all struggle with. Speaking of the song’s lyrics, Robin explained, “A lot of the lines are soundbites of things I’ve heard or been told when myself or a friend has been on a rough patch. The line ‘Is he okay, did he take anything?’ is a question I’ve heard many times in public over the years, if any of us have struggled outwardly.The song is really about shedding light on some of those ugly little moments.

Up and coming Edinburgh band Redolent released a new single “Extreme Mood Swings” via Columbia Records this week.

Out now on their new label at Columbia Records, ‘Extreme Mood Swings’ follows recent single ‘Space Cadet’ and their debut ‘Make Big Money Fast Online’. Led by brothers Danny and Robin Herbert, alongside drummer Andrew Turnbull, bassist Robbie White and Alice Hancock on live samplers, the five-piece band write songs that are modern Scottish snapshots of moments in their lives. .

Self-produced and fronted by half of the sibling duo Danny, who are also engineers at Post Electric Studios (the recording studio run by Idlewild’s Rod Jones), the band consider Tom Vek, Animal Collective, Clairo , king krule, Young Fathers, Dijon and Mount Kimbie are some of their biggest musical influences.

“I’m a big fan of high energy and speed when making music; I like to try to be in the record as much as possible,” Danny explained. “It’s like a giant freight train without brakes.”

Redolent will play a show called “We should catch up if you’re around” at The Biscuit Factory in Edinburgh on November 24. First showcase Fifty.
