“Their clean and jangly guitar melodies bring to mind early work by The Strokes and Arctic Monkeys… [Good God, Great Gatsby]’s progression from chirpy sunny-day bopper to cloudy depression shows real songwriting ability – there’s clearly more to come from this lot.” – The Miniature Music Press
““an intelligent, composed guitar band with a subtle and stylish tuneful electronic feel. The foursome’s sound seems more akin to North America than Cardiff… melodic tracks threaded with a slightly 1960s tinged, yet gently electronically spiky guitar sound, resulting in an overall musical texture not dissimilar to a Two Door Cinema Club/Band of Horses hybrid… The Red Age are a Cardiff band to watch” – Plugged In Magazine
The Red Age are an indie band based in Cardiff that formed in 2010. They aim to produce interesting, melodic, and original music with a desire to never be predictable in their writing or live performances.
The band consists of Craig Stewart (guitar and vocals), Mike O’Kane (guitar), Rory Lewis (bass), and Jean-Pierre Marquis (drums).
They started gigging in May 2011 and have since supported bands including Zeus, Tellison, and Talons, as well as headlining their own shows. They have also received praise from Nation Radio Wales and recently performed a live session for them.
2012 sees their debut release, entitled ‘Hand Over / The Joker’, which will be available as a free download from Monday 6th February. A limited run of 200 physical copies will also be given away at gigs.
Following this, the band will continue to write, record, and release one double-A single every two months for the rest of the year. They will also tour the South and South West during April in support of their next release.
