Today, we are delighted to feature The Red Moons, a promising alternative grunge rock band from Chicago, Illinois, USA. In this review, we will delve into their fantastic song, Candor, exploring its character, style, story, potential, and more.

The Red Moons is a remarkable alternative grunge rock band that caught my attention two weeks ago with their song Candor, part of their single release, Boomerang // Candor, which came out on June 21, 2019. Since their debut album, Out of Touch, in 2015, the band has continued to impress with their albums A Hightened Sense (2017) and Eat Your Own (2018), as well as the single Boomerang // Candor. I invite you to listen to the song while reading the rest of this article.

The Red Moons are an exciting presence in the underground rock scene in Chicago. My introduction to their music was through Candor, and as I explored their social media and learned more about them, my respect for their artistry grew. It is not uncommon for bands to prioritize their music over the business side of things, and The Red Moons embody this perspective.

As someone who has been captivated by stoner rock and metal lately, what struck me about The Red Moons was their remarkable dirty Gibson guitar sound in this song that carries throughout. Candor stands out with its energy, groove, mood, and musicality. It meets high standards in every aspect. The band's decision to focus on the song's overall energy while keeping things simple is a wise choice, and I wholeheartedly support it.

The song immediately envelops you in its fantastic atmosphere, taking you on a moody yet exhilarating journey. The band demonstrates their potential, skill, and experience in capturing such energy in their album. This fusion of grunge and stoner rock produces one of the most distinctive and characteristic sounds I have encountered in a long time. The Red Moons have successfully created something unique and remarkable with this project.

Technically, Candor meets top-class standards in every way. As I mentioned earlier, I was instantly drawn to their sound and talent. It is gratifying to witness such potential being fully realized at this stage. The technical aspects of this specific song contribute significantly to its success, and the genius work of their producer deserves praise. Although I am unsure who produced the album, I extend my congratulations to everyone involved in its creation.

Taking everything into account, I thoroughly enjoyed listening to The Red Moons. They possess all the musical qualities necessary to sustain this project and achieve great things in the future. However, it is disheartening to note that since its release on June 20, 2019, Candor has only been listened to 223 times on YouTube. Such underappreciation is unacceptable. I hope The Red Moons take these words to heart and focus on improving their presence and outreach, especially with their upcoming album release that they are currently working on.

"Currently, they are recording songs for their new album with producer Daniel Salcido (Slipknot, Staind, Nonpoint)."
