Track review: Red Hot Military Audition // The Garage Flowers

Up and coming London rock band The Garage Flowers have been praised for their energetic live shows. The band released their recent single ‘Red Hot Military Audition’ last month. The track was recorded with Margo Broom (Fat White Family, Calva Louise). It explores dark thoughts and the afterlife. The band have received praise from Gigslutz and Louder Than War.

‘Red Hot Military Audition’ is an energetic rock n’ roll banger. This is because the snarling vocals channel the swagger of early Arctic Monkeys and The Courteeners. At the same time, the riffs feel fresh and original.

Towards the end of the song, it takes on an experimental feel with three poems of the occultist Aleister Crowley. The poems were pieced together by vocalist Joe Capaldi. As a result of this, they enhance the dark moody vibe of the lyrics. The guitars in the background enhance this because the chord changes are bleak.

In conclusion, ‘Red Hot Military Audition’ shows that The Garage Flowers have created a captivating sound. Moreover, it is worth listening to because the lyrics represent uncertain times and the perilous state of the world. This could relate to a wide range of people and boost their reputation further.
