SCARLET SOHO: 'HIT THE FLOOR - FAVORITES AND RARITIES' ALBUM 25.10.13
Prior to the release of their as yet unnamed, third album, Scarlet Soho were approached by US electro label A Different Drum with the opportunity to introduce an American audience to their musical career to date via their VIP Collection - this resulted in the'Hit The Floor - Favorites and Rarities' album.
This compilation features tracks from 'Divisions Of Decency' (Human Recordings 2004) and 'Warpaint' (Major Records 2009) alongside 6 previously unreleased tracks.
With a limited run of only 300 copies, this is sure to become a collectors item.
The UK release is sold with an accompanying 16 page visual history of the band dating from 1999-2013.
"It may not be such an unusual sight now, with many acts happily straddling the worlds of pop and indie, but when I first met Scarlet Soho, no one else was doing what they were doing. At a time when going to a gig always meant watching three near identical guitar bands, Scarlet Soho shunned that tired idea of what a band should be, got in a van with some synths and a drum machine and played pop music to those same audiences... Influenced as much by Faith No More as they are by The Human League... Scarlet Soho have always known how to mash genres to create perfect pop. And, like those bands, they stamp their own clear sound and personality on everything they do... Just as they pre-empted the resurgence of intelligent pop, they are pre-empting its next move as we speak." Andy Malt (CMU Daily)
