THE RED PAINTINGS release new music video “It Is As It Was”.

By Jordan Mooney.

After a successful – and very well received – première on Kerrang!, The time has come for us to inspect and appraise the latest video from Trash McSweeney and his marauding bunch of elegant extraterrestrial riffs…

This latest audiovisual offering is a particularly dark and dramatic piece of patchwork art forming a perfect trailer for the group’s theatrical abilities on stage; Loud, overbearing, disorientating and unyielding, it forms a warning to the extra-terrestrial life TRP feature so heavily in their unique form of media – a silken study of a world that’s gone wrong.

The group bite, tear apart and highlight the tragedy of a society that refuses to welcome – and cements the Painting’s place as a sanctuary for those as eccentrically eclectic as themselves. Dark, shaky, even rather unsettling, it feels like a tape of found footage deep within an FBI vault; it, and the group, deserve your closest study, observation, evaluation and attention. There’s more than might meet the eye…

Heartily recommended piece from one of the world’s most unique and creative outfits. Check it out!
