Putting out a full-length album first of all really says we are making music because we dig what we are creating to the masses of music listeners. It almost seems to be such a bold move anymore to put out a full-length album… let along 12 tracks of anything! So more power to Vendetta Red.
Off of Vendetta Red’s latest album, Quinceañera, you will find their first release in a lyric video called “Encantado” a sweet peppy little song that has feels to it. You want to say, sweetness, as you listen to the vocals. It would be great to see a full music video produced to this.
Vendetta Red really seems like a band that just enjoys making what they make.
The album suites them and really feels like it is bouncing all over the place musically. You couldn’t punch in a direct number and say this album fits this genre. You hear a bit of throwback to REM, The Smiths, Older Alt Rock and at times some emo angsty edge creeps through the pores of the lyrically young teen skin. All of these sounds are handled very well throughout the album.
It is great to hear some good music come out of the Northwest and Quinceañera is a markedly delightful rip. Marks of 4 out of 5 for its sound and style. The music is sure to put a smile on your face… wondering though what do they call Vendetta Red followers?
