The Red Stains
The Red Stains. We’re the band you can’t wash out.
The Red Stains take pride in being powerful and subversive. They are a four piece contemporary post-punk band from Manchester consisting of Natalie Emslie on vocals, Sterling Kelly on bass, Ella Powell on synths and Ben Dutton on drums.
The Red Stains are a fierce, highly energetic and entertaining live band, fuelled on chaos and resistance to the injustices in modern day society. They are opinionated and unafraid to use their music as a way of speaking out about the inequalities in society.
The Red Stains take inspiration from an eclectic mix of musical styles, from 70s post punk and experimental new wave to 90s britpop. Their use of gritty bass and minimal, punchy drum lines combined with disconcerting synths and raw, powerful vocals gives them a unique and unpredictable sound.
We would have had some income from gigs and from our single launch in April, which is now not happening. Any finances coming in supporting us through the COVID-19 financial support option, will be going towards making a video for our first release of the song Mannequin out on 24th of April 2020. Thanks for supporting us.
