Scarlet Rebels are thrilled to announce the release YOU TAKE MY BREATH AWAY, today Fri 15 May 2020. It is the fourth song to be taken from their acclaimed album, SHOW YOUR COLOURS, via ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records.
YOU TAKE MY BREATH AWAY is now available across all digital and streaming platforms and accompanied by a ‘lockdown’ video that features fans and musician friends of the band showing how they have been adapting to the current living conditions regarding the covid-19 pandemic.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zsOzZnZCrtY&w=560&h=315]
Frontman, Wayne Doyle, said of the current situation, “These are crazy times, with a lot of hardship and uncertainty for many, many people. Being a musician in these times often seems superfluous and inconsequential but as a FAN of music as well as a musician, I know that music can help get you through some difficult days and I can only hope that the music of Scarlet Rebels has that effect for some people.
“This is why we wanted to include our fans in the video. The music is little without the fans and together we can work through this current dark period and on to something better.
“Musically, You Take My Breath Away is the first song we wrote and recorded as Scarlet Rebels. Chris (guitars) and Josh (guitars and keys) had just joined the band and it was a new beginning for us. Chris had the core riff and then we all worked on it together.
“That fresh energy can be heard throughout the song, its sexy, its sassy, its about a woman owning the room and being empowered and that resonates with everyone that meets her.
“Needless to say, it’s a BIG song for us on stage.”
The album, Show Your Colours, is available in Download, Jewel Case CD and limited edition Vinyl and can be purchased now via the ScarletRebels.com website.
The album was produced and engineered by Tim Hamill (Girlschool, Lemmy, George Michael) and recorded at Sonic One Studios in Llanelli, South Wales.
