How about a little something different then, well that's what you get with this lot. No particular genre as they play a broad spectrum. Describing themselves as experimental they kind of remind me of a modern day Pink Floyd with a mix of instruments, objects and sounds that take you to that lil trip out place in ya brain. Vocally great, Lyrically Superb and the music is just awesome in its own unique way. Rockbandom.com
The band is based in Glasgow and West Scotland. Scarlet INside record and play a broad mixture of sounds and styles playing an experimental style and a stage show mentality...often using bizarre instruments (such as kitchen pots and pans, Ugandan Harp, didgeridoo...etc...) as well as guitars, guitar synths, computers and drums and other instruments as necessary and when desired Scarlet INside is a tripartite entity; musically split into three genres. One is an experimental rock, jazz, prog, blues world music performing band One is Kevin Kennie as a solo act playing acoustic + singer songwriter material One is an experimental electro/ambient/soundscape composition and recording act
in 2016 we recorded a new album THirty RiVers to CRoss https://scarletinside.bandcamp.com/album/thirty-rivers-to-cross
." Scarlet INside has a definite affection for the dark side of the prog garden; the images are vivid and quite full-bodied...you can almost feel that unwanted hand on your knee. The bass line is haunting while drums and guitars tap at the back of your skull a bit delicately, as though attempting to break through without being obtrusive. The vocals cut like a dull knife through a frozen stick of butter; not exactly a gentle exercise but fitting the mood. Kevin channels Jamie Muir for a while as he draws sound from virtually everything and everywhere--and it works perfectly. Don't be scared; the evil genius really is harmless...

In 2011 we recorded our first ‘rock’ EP, called ‘The Fall’, containing five tracks all music and lyrics by Kevin Kennie but with full band involvement in the production, input and output of the tracks. The tracks on this CD are a mixture of blues, rock, prog, jazz, folk, dance, African rhythms, Indian melodies, computer beats and synth sounds, screaming guitar solo’s, industrial crunches, minimalist lines and unusual lyrics...just the way we like it. https://scarletinside.bandcamp.com/album/the-fall in 2013 we released our new album ‘The Blood that we Share’, Volumes 1 and 2. containing a wide mixture of genres, styles and experimentation. Volume 1 is a series of rock, prog and experimental tracks Volume 2 is a more chilled out rock, acoustic and ambient tracks http://scarletinside.bandcamp.com/album/the-blood-that-we-share-volume-1-scarlet https://scarletinside.bandcamp.com/album/the-blood-that-we-share-volume-2-inside

Reviews ‘FORKSTER SAYS:’ The mastermind and sole member of Scarlet Inside, Kevin Kennie, displays his monstrous music talents throughout these thunderous music landscapes. The music took my ears to lands of new sounds and then to progressive rock waves. This was really deep, moving music, built strongly with voice caverns in perfect placed settings. FORKSTER respects the music efforts and talents of Scarlet Inside. Forkster-rOCKS-It-oUT https://www.facebook.com/pages/Forkster-rOCKS-It-oUT/104663383005148
‘One of the best examples of progressive music to come out of Glasgow in a long time. You can never predict what type of show you will get from this experimental trio. What’s guaranteed is that you’ll be completely blown away by their superlative musicianship. Check out their latest EP, ‘The FAll’, on i-tunes’ Paul Wishart: Paul Wishart events ‘known collectively as Scarlet INside and their EP is called ‘The FAll’, certainly influences abound in this EP. Not those of other bands however but sounds and sonic textures from other parts of the world. Take the eastern textures in ‘The FAll’ for example, that bring the kind of variety rarely heard in the output of a Glasgow band. You don’t doubt the maturity of the participants either with ‘Dungeons and Fishtails showing a near theatrical demeanour reminiscent of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band. None of the songs here are three minute, radio friendly snapshots of ice-cream and summer days, but that is hardly a criticism. ‘The FAll’ is the work of an intelligent and committed band. Review by: Bluesbunny The bluesbunny, http://www.bluesbunny.com/ ‘A much stronger performer was Kevin Kennie. A little box of electronic tricks kept his acoustic guitar company for most of his set and that allowed him to stretch out his songs to near prog-rock dimensions. That’s not actually the the insult it sounds like, as there was no doubt the Mr Kennie could both sing and play and I can see him having a lot of appeal to chilled out rock fans The bluesbunny, http://www.bluesbunny.com/
