The kids are addicted and even I’m addicted to the latest single from the Red Rum Club.

Trumpets are the new mainstream in music absolutely everyone is using them, but for the Liverpool-based sextet, they have already been a staple in their diet.

The new single ‘Kids Addicted’ is the must-hear epilogue to the cinematic showdown that was Red Rum Clubs’s debut album, ‘Matador’.

Definitive of their signature Spaghetti Western Rock’N’Roll sound, ‘Kids Addicted’ is an anthemic and emphatic last hurrah. It’s a track that blazes with a furore of mariachi brass, snake-oil rhythms and galloping percussion.

Frontman Fran Doran said: “’Kids Addicted’ is an observation we wanted to make on the modern age of social media and the effect it has on youth culture. The constant interaction with a vast amount of people and the highs and lows of its addictive nature.”

Formed in early 2016, the band channel ‘Tarantino-esque’ wild western vibes with the help of a solitary trumpet. Amongst the 80s Liverpool influence, they deliver a modern twist of poetic yet catchy lyrics combined with melodies that blend to create the sound that is unmistakably, Red Rum Club.

Red Rum Club also recently topped the industry vote in the prestigious Pirate Prodi-gies UK best emerging band which is now set to step their profile up notably in the UK and beyond. Share your thoughts on ‘Kids Addicted’ by leaving a rating out of 10.
