People always ask me to describe a band by telling them who they sound like or what genre, etc. Well, if I had to describe the alluring music of The Red Paintings, I would be left speechless since their uniqueness can only be described by listening to them for yourself. Their music is a fusion of everything from orchestra, punk, rock, alternative and so much more. Their music is rich in colors, depth and amazing artistic talent. We had the great opportunity of catching their set last night at Ace of Spades in Sacramento and to witness first hand their live performance of their orchestral rock art was a treat for all of us.

Their stage appearance and wardrobe was as if they formed their band through time travel, dressed in Renaissance wear or as Japanese Geisha Girls or period pieces. Their set also featured their human canvas which is painted live during their set to the music by local artists. The passion that they bring to the stage bleeds out with every note and every word of their songs. They are highly entertaining and had the crowd engaged from the second they stepped onto the stage. Check out the photos from our Rockin Ryan of their set:

In addition to the songs off their debut album, The Revolution is Never Coming, they performed their much loved cover of Mad World which in my honest opinion, is one of the best remakes of a song leading it to surpass the original in adoration. I loved how they truly owned it with their interpretation and will always have me thinking of them whenever I hear the original. You can watch a video from their set here:

You can pick up their album by visiting their website or iTunes here.  Make sure to check out their social media sites and stay up to date on their latest news.  Also, check out their upcoming tour dates and do yourself a favor and treat yourself to a show. It will be an amazing experience that you will not soon forget.
