Blood Red Shoes Blood Red Shoes on LP + 2CD

Produced and recorded by the band in Berlin and mixed by American indie god John Agnello, Blood Red Shoes' eponymously-titled fourth album serves as the follow up to Box of Secrets (2008), Fire Like This (2010) and the much-lauded In Time to Voices (2012).

"For this album we packed up all our stuff, got in a van and drove to Berlin, where we lived for months in a rented studio space,” explains Steve Ansell. “No producer, no engineer, no A&R people, just us two in a big concrete room in Kreuzberg, jamming and recording our songs whenever we wanted, how we wanted with nobody to answer to except ourselves. It came out as our rawest, heaviest, sexiest and most confident sounding record so far."

Blood Red Shoes is the band’s fourth album, but the first one they've self-produced, having previously worked extensively with Arctic Monkeys producer Mike Crossey. “Everything was so perfect on our third album (‘In Time To Voices’), but we realized that the imperfections are what makes our band – that’s what people like about us,” says singer/guitarist Laura Mary Carter.

A new sense of positivity has also permeated the lyrics on their forthcoming album. “Our default setting as a band is to write from a negative perspective,” says Ansell. “This time it’s about being hedonistic and free and not worrying so much.” One song in particular, "Everything All At Once," comes from “the idea that you might not even wake up tomorrow, so you might as well experience everything right fucking now.”

The most important thing, for Carter and Ansell, is that they've rediscovered the passion at their core. “You know like what it felt like when you’re a kid in art class and the teacher goes out and you just throw the paint around?” asks Ansell. “That’s the feeling of freedom that I can hear in the record. It’s really sloppy, and I love that about it.”
