Track Of The Day: Scarlet – ‘Bring Me Down’

Having received acclaim from the likes of 6Music and Radio 1, Scarlet have previously captured our ears’ attention with their last single ‘Friends’, which was accompanied by a heartwarming, lockdown-made video featuring friends of the band. Now, they’re back with a frenzied new offering.

Propelled by a fierce unrelenting energy as impassioned vocals and catchy punk-pop hooks race throughout, ‘Bring Me Down’ offers a vibrant burst of life with a raging spirit. Of the track, front woman Jessie Robinson explains:

It’s about constantly being treated like a mug. Being underestimated and held back by people that should be working with you. It’s about not being taken seriously, realising it, and setting yourself free.

Track Of The Day: Scarlet – ‘Friends’

Scarlet are punching away lockdown loneliness with their latest post-punk single ‘Friends’ – dedicated to our NHS frontline heroes, and anybody who finds themselves struggling in this present situation. 

Scarlet have heavily reinforced their DIY ethos by pulling together their limited resources in order to create a unifying, energising anthem complete with a pulsating bass-line. Although the single reflects upon the emotional upheaval of isolation, we are not left to dwell on the negatives for too long, as it is difficult to resist bouncing along to the kicking riffs and soaring vocals of Jessie Robinson.  

The accompanying homemade video also does much to raise our spirits as Get In Her Ears favourites such as Salvation Jayne and Tiger Mimic, to name a few, showcase their moves with vigour. Within the space of just a few minutes Scarlet have proven with their latest hit that, despite isolation, we are all still united and making memories with one another is definitely still possible.
