Discovery: The Red Tails

The Red Tails are a rock band from the USA – Selfish Bitch Blues is their latest release, with the title of the track referring to the way in which some Americans have reacted to the pandemic.

As the title of the track suggests, it’s quite a bluesy song, with Selfish Bitch Blues also featuring elements of alt rock, grunge and hard rock. I really enjoyed the guitar melodies here (especially on the verses) and the harder style towards the end of the song was really nice, contrasting with the melodic aspects wonderfully. It’s good to hear something which balances melody and heaviness like this so well – if that sounds good then have a listen to Selfish Bitch Blues below!
