Red Light Driver: Celeste Celeste

Posted on the 27 May 2011 by Hctf @hctf

Red Light Driver

Indianapolis quartet Red Light Diver plays dark, slow rock songs. Wit a penchant of UK doom pop, their new EP Celeste Celeste overflows with echo on shoestring sound effects that may remind you of late night Sci-fi series.

They ride the wave of neo-psychedelica, with drawn out vocals and plenty of sliding up-and down the fret boards. Drummer Drew Reed is rather loud and smack in the middle of the mix with a rock solid beat as a safe haven for the twin guitar front line provided by Derek Osgood and Jonathan Harmon.

There are only four "real" songs on the EP and two "interludes". Enchanting serves as a coda for Celeste Celeste, the poppy title track, and Interlude sounds a lot like a warm up for launching into a full grown song, but for reason just fades out. The band safes the best for last: the haunting Canterbury Tea, with a memorable bass part by Mike Contreras.

Derek Osgood: vocals, guitar
