As I sit here, finally taking the time to write a review for this incredible EP by the Red Flags, I am stuck and wondering “What. The hell. Can I say about The Red Flags that hasn’t already been said?”
After all, I can only say, “I LOVE THIS FUCKING AWESOME BAND” so many times.
But I’ll try anyway.
Earlier this month, The Red Flags released their much-anticipated EP titled “Summer Dirties.” I can confidently say that there couldn’t have been a better name for the record, all five songs on this EP sound, smell, look, feel, and taste like summer (and a little bit of Jonah’s sweat, but that’s to be expected of any song this band brings to the table).
These five tracks will have you feeling like you’re on the highway blasting the record with the windows down no matter where you happen to be listening to it. This three-piece has an inexplicable way of creating a classic but at the same time brand-spankin’-new and innovative rock and roll sound. They continue to surprise us all with how awesome they can prove themselves to be. Just when you think they couldn’t get any better, they go out and release this EP.
I would appreciate a little warning for the next record, so I can properly prepare to have my ears fucked (in the best way).
In conclusion, I highly recommend going out to a Red Flags show to pick up this EP while supplies last.
In the meantime, you can also get “Summer Dirties” on bandcamp, and more at the links listed below!
