WHAT IS BEING SAID
"Ooh, it's so shiny and colourful. American indie rock/electro kids Redflecks toured the country from March to April. And their sound reminds me alot of Canadian dance-punks "You say party! We say die!". Throw in some karen o, some strokes, some blondie, vocalist amy's own sultry flair, some deep bass lines, a bag full of smarties, and you've got an idea. Shiny happy people!"
- YL of Blunt Magazine
"...Fatal Devotion" sounds like a female-fronted Interpol, but replaces that band's flatlined delivery with Amy's elastic Karen-O vocals and a surprisingly limber arrangement. Electronic elements — robotic handclaps and overdriven drum machines — are kept to a kitsch-less minimum, and the band's slow-burning melodies twist and turn in spooky and strangely catchy ways."
- The Rage July 2008 by Dave Paulson
“Hey Da Da Da Da” is a real party track with Blondie-esque vocals and swirling, fuzzy guitars over dance-ready beats.”
- CMJ Sept 3rd 2007 New Music Report Spotlight
“... This band, half of which is female, play a fun version of indie rock, alternative with lots of 80’s new wave and post-punk influences.”
-Llyod Harp of UpriseZine Magazine
We've heard songs like Red Flecks "Hey Da Da Da Da" countless times, but this track is just so damn sexy, it's just hard to resist. Whether it's Amy's sexy vocals, or the low-key synths, this track just oozes sexy. It's actually sorta reminiscent of Blondie (remember when Deborah Harry wasn't old and wrinkly and actually hot)...It's what all the cool scensters are listening to these days."
-Urb Magazine by Som Khamsaysoury"
Polished...the result of performing together since 2005. Lead singer Amy has an accomplished voice and her cohorts do a fine line in supporting her with solid bass, keys and lead backing…some angst, some anger, some moody and dreamy Stereolab-ish groove”
-Levi’s Original Music Magazine (S.A.) by Travis Lyle
...The music came off as thoughtful and powerful at the same time. Bassist Nicole seemed to leak cool all over the stage, as Amy almost whispered her sweet lyrics over an exuberant, professional sounding background noise. The album calls for multiple repeat spins that never let down the listener. The album also boasts what many indie and commercial albums seem to struggle with—cohesiveness. ...Redflecks have consistently proved themselves to be a powerful force onstage, and...are destined to be a group that will find a place in the hearts of pop craving preteens, music geeks, and everything in between.
-Taylor Kuykendall [blogger]
“…like nothing on the scene today…progressive, experimental, eclectic, retro and yes even pop all rolled into one...my favorite band.”
-Moe, promoter @ The Note Worthy
“…Redflecks who really stole the show for me. So much energy and stage presence combined with great songs really got the crowd into the party mood. We are sad that Redflecks are back in the USA but so glad we got to watch them perform!”
-Electrotrash.co.za (South Africa)
“I looked them up on Myspace and after validating that I wouldn’t be making an embarrassment of myself, I dragged my ‘sound engineer/hip-hop producing/musical snob’ housemates out to support. We didn’t really expect what we saw and heard that night. We were in awe of everything about this Nashville-based band, but mostly by how much they convinced us. They stood on stage and believed that what they were giving us was worthy. The conversations came to a complete halt and it was like that for the rest of the assembled crowd as well - people were actually paying attention to this band”
- Live gig review @ The Annex, NYC by freelance writer, Tamsyn ten Krooden
“…A female fronted rock influx…if Blondie and The Strokes were to have a sonic lovechild, it would sound like this band…”
