PREMIERE: RedHook bring Halsey meets post-hardcore energy with ‘Minute On Fire’

Self-confessed “rap-rock-electro-pop mutants” RedHook have unleashed a new single, ‘Minute On Fire’, proving the band have claimed their position as scene trailblazers ready to push the boundaries of anthemic post-hardcore.

A pulsating, ethereal and cathartic feast of ripping guitars and sensory enhancing electronics, ‘Minute On Fire’ finds the perfect equilibrium between heavy rock aggression and saccharine synthpop bite.

Lending from the likes of Bring Me The Horizon, Twenty One Pilots and Hands Like Houses, the track’s shifts between schizophrenic-style rapped vocals, bellowing screams and soaring clean vocals blended with it’s sleekly produced chuggy-instrumentals – it’s the type of track that is poised to go off in a live setting.

According to frontwoman Emmy Mack, the song is a soundtrack to her “fucking up her life”, musing on temptations, desires and trying situations that often help us grow the most.

“We’ve all done awful things as human beings, lost ourselves to dark desires and felt everything come crashing down as one bad decision triggers countless others.”

“This is a song about that first domino to fall, that first seemingly innocuous choice to risk everything for a quick fix of something that feels good, a ‘minute on fire’ that rapidly ends up sending your whole life up in flames.” said Emmy.
