Red Sea is a group raised in the sugar-coated bubble heartlands of Northern Metropolitan Atlanta. After an extended period of musical experimentation with other various groups and by virtue of agreeing aesthetic values, social and geographic proximity, the current members, Kyle, Mick, Patrick and Stephen coalesced circa 2009. As of late, their influences are said to have stemmed from tropicalia, funk, classical and gamelan music. Red Sea's latest EP, In The Salon, showcases its taste through a bricolage of pop tracks, all of which were recorded live with electric guitars, synthesizers, bass and drums. The boys sing words that humor auto-suggestive techniques over synthi-mutant ballads & fragmented rhythms which emulate the digitally contrived worlds of sound that they create.
