Red Sails Short Info

“The vocals of the two lead (they both sing on most songs, so would go as far to say this) vocalists blends sublimely so as to create texture and depth. Red Sails create a sound that tugs at your heartstrings; they have a knack of layering and building their songs to a point that is ethereal. Their harmonies and melodies are not necessarily straightforward, but combined with the dreamlike quality of their music they evoke a sense of melancholy and nostalgia, encouraging you to think of your own personal past life experiences. Without sounding too soppy or pretentious, you get the impression that this is a band that wants you to genuinely ‘feel’ the music along with the emotions produced within their songs. It was a heartfelt set that captivated the audience.”
— Gina Kershaw, Mangoneblog

“If you're looking for well crafted, melodic tunes in a Steely Dan sylee then you've come to the right place because Ralph's been listening to Red Sails from Liverpool and it's time you did too! Their tracks sound simple but are actually complex well written musical gems that soar, taking you on highs and lows with their lyrics and melodies.”
— Michael Lindley, Ralph.

“There is a too often tendency for alt rock bands to churn out songs that can hardly be differentiated from their other songs, or the songs of their peers. This accusation cannot be levelled at Red Sails. Each of the Liverpool’s bands songs has a unique, interesting character, and they provide a sound that sets them apart from any other. Sitting in the sun listening to Looking Out To Sea and Sure Enough, I thought: these are the perfect track for the moment. I then came upon a review of Sure Enough, which claimed that it was the perfect song for dark winter nights. It appears as though Red Sails have created music that suits all situations, and all moods, without neglecting originality." ”
