The six-man collective have a wide range of influences ranging from hip hop to indie.
'Red Velvet' is the gritty third single from alt-pop band sourfruit's debut album Between Sky and Sea, which is slated for release this summer.
The group’s debut EP, ‘Phtalo Blue’ - released last year - has amassed over 500,000 streams on Spotify alone, showing their ability to spread their music far and wide and build up a loyal fanbase.
The seven-track EP from the Dun Laoghaire group is a “bedroom-pop project with a wide range of hiphop and indie influences”, dropped via the GONZO Collective of artists, musicians and filmmakers.
Embodying influences in spheres of alternative hip-hop and indie, the musical inspiration of James Blake, Choker and Brockhampton is clearly visible in sourfruit's catalogue of tracks.
Consisting of three vocalists, a pianist, a bassist and a guitarist/ableton push player, sourfruit are an unusual collective that bring the talents of six people into the mix.
'Red Velvet' explores the beginning of a downward spiral painted through a pathetic fallacy of a brewing storm.
The lyrics capture the feeling of helplessly losing a sense of yourself, desperately searching for control, and eventually accepting your circumstances and letting go.
