'Red Rooves' is a stellar introduction to the upcoming album, drawing inspiration from the infectious energy of The Go-Go's. The track effortlessly combines classic BULL jangly guitars, catchy melodies, and frontman Tom Beer's distinctive vocals, creating an ever-reliable journey that is both nostalgic and refreshingly modern. the instantly infectious opening and repetitive chants throughout make this an instant ear-worm, leaving us eager to explore the full scope of 'Engines of Honey.'
I wrote it on a really broken electric guitar I have which only had a couple of strings” Tom explains. “I recorded the riff and then started mumbling over the top. I thought the chords made me think of a sort of mystical awe type of feeling. The words are literally about looking out of my window, seeing the ‘Red Rooves’ the sun, the sea. While recording we were really trying to sound like the go-go’s ‘Our Lips Are Sealed’ or something, looking for sparkly pop production, so this is our attempt at that while hoping to keep the original mystic awe feeling.”
