Newcastle-based fusers of alt-indie, blues, jazz and psychedelic rock, The Redroom, are set to drop their latest single Time on Friday 19th August. The band, who are inspired by the likes of Joy Crookes, Mac DeMarco and Lily Allen, have some big shows lined up to support the release at Newcastle University (19th Aug), Hardwick Festival (20th Aug) and Lindisfarne Festival (1st Sept).

The track talks about the feeling of time stopping when you fall in love, followed by the overwhelming feeling of frustration when that feeling isn’t mutual. It’s an ethereal groove filled with sun-soaked soul and misty-eyed melodies that will have you swaying and singing ‘til the Summer fades from view.

We’re delighted to get a sneaky listen to Time before its release. Here, lead singer and lyricist Jess Lewis-Ward tells us more:

“Time means so much to me because it encapsulates perfectly the feelings of uncertainty and limbo that unrequited love gives. The song is almost a time stamp for a moment in my life that was important but fleeting.
“Time gives nods to psychedelic rock, alternative-indie and soul, so if you’re a fan of any of those, time should be the track for you! 
Time is a genre-bending love song with enticing riffs and dreamy vocal lines, it highlights a moment in my life that made me question a lot of things and I believe that listeners will be able to relate. “
