Red Electrick frontman releases solo single
Joe Roscoe has come a very long way since his busking days in the UK. The talented artist and frontman of Red Electrick managed to make a name for himself as a solo artist a few years back. Nowadays, he electrifies crowds along with the Red Electrick boys.
Apart from being a frontman, Roscoe is also a songwriter and producer, with his name being credited on a number of hit tracks. Though it’s been a while since his last solo release, we certainly believe it was worth the wait, as he dropped his super single Red Flag yesterday.
“I wrote the song last year but had never got round to producing and finishing it off. This is the first single I have ever produced myself from scratch to finish, so developing the sound took some thought, since it had been a while since my last solo release,” said the artist. He went on to describe the contents of the song, which talk about the past and present versions of a person, as well as the journey of development from the ‘old’ person, to the new and improved version.
“I feel like people try to be better versions of themselves every day, and sometimes there are rare conscious moments of realisation, that you have actually moved forward. It took one of these moments to spark the lyrical idea.”
The video, on the other hand, was shot and directed by Bennard Buttigieg, and is an accurate representation of what it may feel like to be stuck in a loop. Time continues to pass and life presents a series of hurdles, as well as springboards. However, it all tends to work out in the end.
Red Flag was written and produced by Joe Roscoe and mixed and mastered by David Vella at Temple Studios.
