Red Paintings,  The - Revolution Is Never Coming, The Epic, ambitious and inspiring, the long-awaited debut record from orchestral artrock group The Red Paintings was five years in the making, taking founder and songwriter Trash McSweeney on an endless quest around the globe for the rightcolours to shape his synesthesia-inspired opus. The results are impressive – a 35-piece orchestra, harps, theremins, a 22-piece choir and of course, the band’s biting alternative rock, ranging from childlike lullabies of the future, to rousing emotional anthems. The hits are all here – the ubiquitous ‘Walls’, ‘Rain’ and‘ Streets Fell Into My Window’ sound as lush and effective as ever, whilst the hidden gems ‘You’re Not One Of Them’, ‘Deleted Romantic’ and ‘Hong Kong’ raise the caliber of The Red Paintings’ output yet another notch. It looks as though the creative promise and ambition of The Red Paintings has finally been fulfilled on this dynamic and electric debut

Outstanding debut record

Krystal on 09.06.2013

This is an outstanding debut album from a band with larger-than-life ambitions. It is impeccably crafted and its execution and scope are simply phenomenal. For an Australian group, The Red Paintings are all the more impressive, having produced a world-class record that matches the sonic space and theatricality of many of their more accomplished international peers on major labels. It recalls the breakout releases of many of alternative rock's heroes - Coheed and Cambria's Good Apollo; Smashing Pumpkins' Mellon Collie; Live's Throwing Copper; Muse's Showbiz: it has all the other-worldy nature of these and more. For its progressive nature, memorable songwriting and consistent quality from start to finish, this deserves all the praise it attracts. I truly hope that in years to come this will be seen as a landmark record for the band and that we see plenty more from them in years to come. Congratulations.
