THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Rosy Finch are a sludge riot-metal trio born in Spain in 2013 with an eclectic blend of the ’90s grrls and a lot of alternative rock influences from Sonic Youth to Melvins. The band build a world through noisy elements and atmospheric vocals, at times delirious and at others full of rage, combining both insidious and heavy riffs to perfection. Rosy Finch break out of the mould and take the listeners on a completely different path than the one usually expected from a band of this genre.

The rhythm section changed during the recording of their last work Scarlet. Oscar Soler (Domo, Pyramidal) and Juanjo Ufarte (Grajo, The Dry Mouths) joined the band in 2019 on bass and drums. Their sound has completely transformed into a more visceral and aggressive live shows. The new formation has created a new heavy sound where Mireia Porto (singer and guitarist) finally seems to be in her element and succeeded in transmitting her darkest emotions.

Scarlet is about aspiring to be more and to do more. It’s about the idea that nothing will remove the pain but nothing can detain you. Red has always represented danger, lust, sin, guilt, blood…” says Mireia. Each song on Scarlet has a red-type colour in the title and represents different stories of different people (from fantasy to the real life) always ranging from love to violence. The album is heavier and sludgier than their previous releases and contains plenty of screams, melodic vocals, metal drums and dirty bass lines. I’ts dark and it’s Scarlet red.”
