Redwood announce Leeds date and new EP

Hertfordshire alternative rock band REDWOOD are pleased to reveal the video for their latest single In Your Arms, which is out now via all good digital service providers, following its first play from Daniel P Carter on the BBC Radio One Rock Show, and a premiere of the video at Clash Magazine.

The track is the latest to be taken from their new EP Lay Your Love Down which is set for release 5th October 2018 via Failure By Design Records. The EP is available to preorder now.

For the new video, the band collaborated with Cambridge-based illustrator, artist, musician and animator Phil Whitton to create a striking and unusual world that reflects the imagery in the song itself.

“We were beyond excited to work with Phil Whitton on the video,” said front man Alex Birchall of the partnership. “I gave him a small brief of key elements I wanted and he took the rest from there. He really delivered with this video that we couldn’t be more pleased with.”

“Musically, In Your Arms was an exploration into the depths of our sound as a band,” Birchall continues, “We’ve all been listening to a variety of different music in the last year and in turn our tastes have matured and developed. We wanted to be able to demonstrate this growth in five different and distinct ways with the tracks on this EP.

“Lyrically the song leads to ideas of not fully being present; not being able to be the ‘you’ that you know you can be. Writing it was almost like I was having a conversation with my own brain and ignoring the things I should have been looking at.”

The band recently announced a short run of special UK headline shows for October 2018 to celebrate the release of their forthcoming EP with further live dates TBA.
