The Red Paintings are an orchestral art rock band/collective conceived and driven by lead vocalist/guitarist, songwriter and creative polymath Trash McSweeney.
Eschewing traditional rock formats with all-female backing band incorporating violin, cello, drums, bass. They traverse a vast musical landscape - this is truly contemporary progressive rock, fusing punk, classical, indie rock and metal in a unique sonic synthesis, underpinned by The Red Paintings' deep social consciousness. Haunting child-like lullabies of the future juxtaposed with raw, tearing alt-rock, multi-layered with epic orchestral arrangements.
The Red Paintings' audience defies pigeon holes - baroque-pop steam-punks, metal-heads, indie-rock fanatics, musos who love challenging, intelligent songwriting and expression. Their live appearances are less gigs in the traditional sense, more immersive multimedia performance art events centered on their music. They recruit and involve local artists on stage to paint human body canvases and static canvases in real time, expressing the catharsis of the music. Their shows are highly theatrical, blending sound and visuals to create a visceral experience that captivates the senses and minds of the audience.
New album coming in 2020 mixed by ALAN MOULDER takes the act to another level of composition, artistry and grit.
