L-O-V-E gets the starring role in the latest single from festivalfield-conquering six-piece, Red Rum Club, as they stop summer’s Waltzer ride of joyous summer gigs to release Love Me Like You Wanna Be Loved. Having left screams and smiles behind at major festivals including TRNSMT and Neighbourhood Weekender, the deep-thinking, hard-dancingdisco kings – and one of the UK’s most exciting live bands – cool down long enough to release the third single from upcoming, third album, How To Steal The World.
Never better than seeing the whites of their fans’ smiles, Red Rum Club caused near pandemonium on their recent support tour with Circa Waves and now look ahead, not only to headlining the Saturday night of Sound City, but also a SOLD-OUThomecoming at the 2,300 capacity Mountford Hall, Liverpoolin October. Love Me Like You Wanna Be Loved arrives as anotherheartfelt, up-tempo dream of a singalong just in time for the outswing of a 2021 that has put Red Rum Club right back where they belong.
Within the folds of every handclap, lighting-strike of brass and peal of fuzzy guitars lies a melancholic yearning as love takes a firm hold of an innocent heart, finding Red Rum Club walking atightrope of emotion. Yet Love Me Like You Wanna Be Loved is ultimately the sound of love’s enduring upsides, dancing on the shimmering surface of the unashamed, rainbow sky and glitterfountain of pop music.
The band’s singer, Fran Doran says: “This single is brazenly upbeat, allowing the echoes of pop, disco and funk’s past to shine brightly through into the form of a modern pop anthem. Our ambition was to create a nostalgia-tinged wall–of–sound with apassionate message of hope. What came out was an all-out sing along anthem, so – mission accomplished!”
There are twelve tracks waiting for fans on How To Steal The World, released on Fri 22 October 2021 on Modern Sky, an album that was first introduced with the smoky cool ofNightcalling in June. Carried on a late-night mist of conga beats, scratchy guitar lines and trademark trumpet adrenaline shots, the single signalled no fading confidence or passion from a band hurt by a year away from the stage. Influenced as much by Arctic Monkeys as any vintage funkateers, the page-turning Vibratecame next, telling a straight-up tale of love in the modern age,where beeps and buzzes can be the difference between heartbreak or a happy ever after. Gradually moving new tracks in alongside those of their first two albums, Matador and The Hollow Of Humdrum, the response from audiences – their own and borrowed (permanently) from the bands they share stages with – has been effusive.
