Oz, Never heard of Losing Scarlet, that’s oz. I happen to know of this local (for now) Chicago Band because the Bass Guitarist Scott (or Tiny) happens to be a long time friend of mine. Having been impressed by Tiny’s guitar playing for years, I am truly excited by the sound that this new band has come up with.
Coming off more mainstream than most of Tiny’s previous endeavors which tended to be much more of a metal sound, Losing Scarlet is in a regular rotation in my library. Their Myspace page has 4 singles on it.
My favorite of these is “Forsaken” -With a strong metal/hard rock sound at the start the band seems to show their roots in metal; but as the vocalist Jodi takes over, it quickly becomes a alternative rock sound with an stunning A Capella where she gets to show off her voice and range.
The Myspace page describes them here:
“Losing Scarlet formed in late 2007 and each member shares a unique diversity with one another. The five musicians have experience in the Chicago music scene that ranges from Metal, Punk, Rock and have come together to create a fresh sound. The music is heavy yet melodic and this band is definitely bringing something new to the table.”
Tiny promises me they are going to release a new Demo pretty soon, can’t wait to get my hands on it.
