One-On-One: Blood Red Shoes


Those looking for the next big band should conclude their search; the Bastards have found them. Meet Blood Red Shoes, an up-and-coming UK band that's already taken most of the world by storm.

Recorded at Great Scott in Allston, MA last Sunday the B3 crew sit down with Blood Red Shoes as they are embarking on their first U.S. tour to support their latest album Fire Like This. First up is drummer/vocalist Steven Ansell, who discusses the band's origins, the story behind the music video for "Heartsink," how they beat the pirates to the punch and meeting Edgar Wright.

Then guitarist/vocalist Laura-Mary Carter sits down to share her feelings on the current tour, her Boston roots, the one-of-a-kind guitar known as "Springtime" and how she had to battle the flu in the beginning of the American tour. Plus the duo share their inspirations, which country has awestruck them the most and tell us which three albums they'd take with them if they were stuck on a deserted island.
