Curtcircuit 2016: Red Mosquitos + Ella Speed

  • Music

Time Out says

Inspired by bluesmen the likes of Albert King an Muddy Waters and by guitarists like Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page, Red Mosquitos also count among their influences more modern artists including The Black Keys and Jack White. They're presenting their first album, self-published in November 2015, 'The Devil in You'.

Taking the stage next are Ella Speed, a duo of Dutch guitarist and singer Rik Van Den Bosch and Mallorcan drummer Luis Bestard. Their sound moves between rhythmic blues patterns, the New Orleans second line, the impossible chords of noise and 1990s shoegaze, as well as the most underground garage. It all results in a bastardised and up-to-date version of American roots music.
