Redjetson are a six-piece spread over the less glamorous parts of London and the near beyond (Southend). Having honed their sound for the past 18 months, the band are set to release their debut album ‘New General Catalogue’ on independent label Drowned in Sound in January 2005.
The adventure preceding this has seen Redjetson release a debut split 12” single with Oxford sorcerers Youthmovie Soundtrack Strategies (‘This City Moans’ and ‘Divorce’ b/w ‘…Spooks The Horse’ [YMSS]), alongside a co-headlining tour with the same group, as well as a spate of recently-wowing London shows which have generated the sort of praise that would make even a professional egoist blush. Add to that the curation of their own ‘Do Or Die’ and ‘Soldier Boy’ club nights in East London, and it’s already been an eye-opening experience.
Redjetson deal with epic songs full of slow-burning grandeur, emotional intensity and imposing passion. Despite their glacial exterior, their tunes are infused with a deep warmth and beating heart, moving away from the constrictive forms of ‘post rock’, and into warmer, more soulful climbs.
