Neo-soul pop newbies The Redroom continue their surge in the north as they announce the release of their latest creation, ‘The Woman From Nowhere’.
Weaving a mysterious tale of wonder and intrigue, ‘The Women From Nowhere’ has a unique sense of dark fascination that vocalist Jess Lewis constructs through her powerful soul-edged vocals. Combining the band’s signature alt-indie, blues, jazz and psychedelic rock elements, ‘TWFN’ is the band’s first foray into a new style of songwriting.
The track itself acts as a narration, outlining a story of a transient woman who doesn’t navigate life within the confines of mainstream society. Lyricist and lead singer Jess Lewis-Ward describes a unique encounter that inspired this new approach to lyric-writing. She said: “’The Woman From Nowhere’ is a story based on a short real-life encounter. It’s a complex take on a simple interaction. A passing conversation with an interesting woman at a music festival, led to a burst of inspiration that I had to see through.
“The song itself encapsulates the way in which my mind works, where I’ll often create whole worlds and stories for strangers that I meet or observe along the way. I think ‘TWFN’ accurately captures the variety of musical influences (from Louise Verneuil to America) that guide our songwriting”.
