Sculpting innovative, bass-driven sounds, dizzy with rhythms and hooks, Red Sky Noise merge raw soul inspired vocals with a mixture of live and programmed beats and instrumentation to craft something unmistakably vivid and current.
Formed by one half of Radio 1’s hotly tipped ‘Citizen’ - Red Sky Noise bound through a kaleidoscope of influences and genres, assimilating contemporary bass music with elements of 90’s dance and classic soul.
2012 saw Citizen win Radio 1’s prestigious, 'BBC Introducing' competition, a victory which Inevitably lead to a surge of interest from the media. This resulted in interviews and live performances on Radio 1, and bookings for a host of UK and European festivals, including Hideout, Global Gathering, Isle of White Festival and Ibiza Rocks. The band were then recruited to perform as part of HMV’s nationwide festival showcasing up and coming talent from across the UK.
Now armed with the new unmistakeable lead vocals of Mica Millar, the Manchester quartet emerged in 2013 as Red Sky Noise. Their genre-fusing sound developed in the studio to a level that has seen new material being broadcast on Radio within 24 hours of it being uploaded to the BBC introducing website.
Since October they have been added to the roster of live and big name radio DJ agents Coalition Talent Agency, as well a signing to new Manchester independent record label MUK Records - also home to Mancunian label mates MDNGHT. The bands debut single and club focused remix package entitled ‘Only You’ has been scheduled for an early 2014 release on MUK, with the radio promo already garnering instant BBC Radio 1Xtra support.
After awarding the single Radio 1Xtra ‘introducing’ single of the week, the station followed up with a week of national playlisting of the track, starting November 18th. Immediate, vibrant, and fast becoming one of the city's most exciting new crossover acts, Red Sky Noise are looking heaven-sent to light up the nation’s airwaves and dance-floors.
‘Only You’ (darkness inside) will be released early 2014 on MUK Records.
