Imagine Alison Mosshart’s fiery howl mixed with Led Zeppelin’s demonic undertones pulled out of the noisiest depths of Daydream Nation and you can get a sense of what the Chicago duo Redgrave brings to the table. What started as a bedroom hobby early last year for singer/guitarist Angie Mead formed into a full blown cohesive rock band as soon as Mead’s demos reached the ears of Stephen Howard, who would join the band on drums.
On June 12th, Redgrave will release their five song debut EP entitled National Act. As a first listen, check out album cut “Dick Moves”, a ferocious blues jam filled with swampy power chords, Mead’s frenzied holler, and Howard’s thunderous percussion.
In the coming weeks, Redgrave will play shows in Chicago and Iowa. Check out updated tour docket below.
National Act is out on Jun 12th via Lovitt Records.
