Blue and green record exploding into shards

Go Home

Redmojo are now in the zone, following on from their 70/80 EP with a really strong single in the form of ‘Go Home’. It’s emotive rock, with a vocal that jostles for position amongst the likes of Gary Lightbody and Grant Nicholas.

This single has a rather weird, practically monotonal section that sounds like a strange chorus until the actual chorus kicks in sounding all the more dynamic due to following on from such a flat section.

‘Who Am I To You?’ is an angular track with rolling drums and swimmy guitars that suddenly bursts forth into a funky chorus, led expertly by a spidery bass guitar. The solo is a tad self-indulgent whereas a simple, melodic and short solo might have done better, but that’s a small price to pay for a cracking song.

‘Dylan’ mixes guitars from U2’s ‘One’ and Crowded House’s ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’ with the keys from Keane’s cover of ‘With or Without You’ in this chilled-out new-pop classic. The smoking solo (banned from your local venue next month) fits perfectly in this song. This track might not be as rock and roll as the others, but if you just want to listen to exactly the same idea used over and over throughout a whole record, you’d be buying an Oasis album.

Redmojo should be finishing off their debut album about now and there had better be some more songs like this on it.
