Here’s what I said about “Red Sex” in my earlier write up of Vessel’s latest record PUNISH, HONEY:
“Industrial influences are and have been part of Vessel’s sound all along as well. The plodding thud of a beat for (my favorite track here) ‘Red Sex’ brings it right home. I am compelled to do ‘the mad man.’ That’s a dance. And the people on the train with me (who are not intoxicated by Vessel’s sounds right now because I’m wearing headphones and NOT sharing) just do not understand. But my eyes are closed and the synth bass is fat as fuck and the weird, wonderful synth lead is causing waves in the environment while calling to me. And in my mind’s eye it is transformed into a cloud of smoke that has taken the form of the hand of some lady of the night. And that lady’s hand is making the ‘come on’ gesture in my direction. I mean, what am I supposed to do here??”
The weird and wonderful video for “Red Sex” – just two dudes, hanging out – was directed by Harry Wright.
