Blood Red Shoes - Box of Secrets

Blood Red Shoes are a two-piece rock band from Brighton who take influence from the likes of Nirvana, Huggy Bear, Jesus Lizard, The Fall and Mudhoney. The band consists of Steven Ansell (vocals and drums) and Laura-Mary Carter (vocals and guitar) and they formed in 2005 after their previous bands (Cat On Form and Lady Muck respectively) had broken up and they decided to "have a jam". They have released four 7" records on different independent labels (Jonson Family, Try Harder, Abeano/XL, Drowned in Sound) and are currently signed to V2. Their debut album promises to be one of the most eagerly anticipated of 2008 .

"Blood Red Shoes come on like Comanechi with less hair, or them Whites if they'd been raised in gutter punk clubs: totally entrancing." - Drowned In Sound

"For Blood Red Shoes, read Really Bloody Great. A jolting, jagged assault on the senses." - This Is Fake DIY

"Think the White Stripes with the roles flipped over, less blues and an injection of pure-bred punk-rock and you're on the right track" - The Guardian
