Hailing from London, 4-piece Alt-Rock outfit Ravenfangs approaches the music scene with their debut single, an anthemic, rebellious and unapologetic punk-infused gem, ‘Sick Of The Blue’. Channelling the band’s frustration in these uncertain times, the song relates to their need for happiness, aiming to escape a rather blue reality.
Based in South-West London, Ravenfangs are not simply a band, but a communion of ideas and intents. Frustrated with the reality of our world, lost between a dire pandemic scenario and a hostile political climate, Marco, Joe, Will and Simon didn’t waste any time complaining, instead engaging their musical talent as an artistic output, particularly noticeable in their raw, high-powered live shows. Inspired by the rebellious sound of the 90s – think Nirvana, Libertines, Placebo – and evergreen rock pillars – Led Zeppelin, Frank Zappa, The Clash – Ravenfangs create three-dimensional music, balanced between poignant guitar tones and unapologetic power drums, topped by close-knit, dense vocals, eager to convey their inquisitive message.
Recording ‘Sick Of The Blue’ was a fast process: once a demo version was drafted, producer Richard Ellison was brought on board to finalise the track, using various studios and locations around London. About the track, head honcho Marco explains: I suppose I wrote ‘Sick Of The Blue as a form of escapism from a dark and lonely reality, just wanting to feel happy – which I think that’s how most people feel every day after work. You know, everyone wants to smile and be happy”.
