RED INK - NEW SINGLE 'GOING INSANE', ALBUM RELEASED & SHOW
Melbourne indie-pop outfit Red Ink have returned home from Europe armed with a self-titled album and their most infectious pop melody to date in the form of single ‘Going Insane’. To celebrate the arrival back on our shores, the four-piece will play to their loyal fans – who have been eagerly awaiting their return – in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney.
Tinged with a cathartic undercurrent and brought to life by the yearning vocals of John Jakubenko, the dancefloor-ready track 'Going Insane' is a mighty return for the band, who spent the better part of 2013 playing to sold out venues across Europe.
The group wrote and recorded their debut album in Berlin with Aussie-turned-Berlin based producer Simon Berckelman, known for his part in the legendary group Philadelphia Grand Jury. Industry heavyweight Tom Larkin also worked with the group, producing the first single, ‘Going Insane’.
Without any funding or label support, Red Ink have continued to win over fans nation-wide, clocking up over a quarter of a million views on YouTube alone. The group have been favourites on the live music scene for many years, having graced the stages at Pyramid Rock Festival, Stereosonic, Playground Weekender, and internationally at The Great Escape and Liverpool’s Sound City.
Years of national touring have added a worldliness and depth to Red Ink’s sonic landscape; the thrilling response from UK club and festival punters on the band’s first UK tour in May 2012 confirmed what fans and media at home have been shouting from rooftops: that Red Ink, as The AU Review note, are proving that “Australian independent music is the best in the world.”
"We love music and that very passion has taken us to some crazy place. We’ve released EPs in the past, but this record is something altogether different. It’s our baby. We’ve never been so proud to have a body of work and we’re emotionally and physically attached to the project." - Red Ink
‘Polished production, deftly layered soundscapes and great playing make Red Ink’s music stand out from a crowd.’
‘A great live sound and a raw, gripping performance that proves Red Ink have the world at their feet.’
‘All the hype about Red Ink is true.’
