Liverpool-based six-piece Red Rum Club channel their inner Tarantino on new single Calexico.
Built around brash swells of Spaghetti Western brass, the latest single from Liverpool-based sextet Red Rum Club is the sort of track to instantly take its listeners out of their comfort zone and deposits them somewhere else entirely. From the outset, a solitary trumpet transcends both time and space, leaving listeners caked in sand and itching for a bourbon.
Bridging the gap between colloquial indie rock and cinematic soundscape, it’s easy to imagine Calexico belting out across festival fields; its fresh, frenetic nature serving to make it the sort of anthem Kasabian would wish they’d written, were they bold enough to pick up a trumpet. It’s an impressive effort, one that proves that there’s still plenty of life left in the UK’s indie scene, you just have to go beyond the pages of NME to find it.
