About the latest album release, "Resettlement"

The latest album focuses on the subject of refugees and the immigrant experience. The album was inspired by Red Black Red's circle of family and friends – the majority of whom are the children of immigrants or asylum-seekers, or immigrants themselves; a fact taken for granted until recently. While the album has no overt political pretensions, it was spurred in part by the anti-immigrant / anti-refugee overtones present in current American political discourse. As an immigrant himself, the primary American experience of Red Black Red has been that of immigrants and refugees – and the songs on this album attempt to voice that emotional and psychological experience. The songs explore themes of displacement, loneliness, community, unspeakable violence, and most importantly, survival and hope.

The album has received overwhelmingly positive reviews, some excerpts below. Also check out the video page above for music vids:

Vents Magazine
"Red Black Red’s Resettlement is a profoundly affecting musical work adorned with some of the best writing you’ll hear in recent history on an indie release." 

Indie Music Review  
"Resettlement hopefully isn’t some one off recording because there’s promise present in this collection that could be consolidated into one of the indie scene’s most important ongoing projects."

No Depression 
"Red Black Red’s Resettlement leaves a mark on listeners and takes risks many others wouldn’t dare. The gamble pays off over and over again for artist and listener alike." 

Blog Critics / Seattle PI
"Resettlement delivers a cusp of musical transition: the amalgamation of prog-rock, alt-rock, gospel exuberance, dynamic stasis, and frictional harmonics into innovative, matchless music - like something out of a futuristic sonic factory, where wild residual energy and the infinite plasticity of the digital merge. It's completely sui generis and totally excellent." 

Skope Mag
"The burning spirit that goes into these songs makes Red Black Red’s debut one of the more impactful alternative rock releases heard in some time." 

Gashouse Radio
"Resettlement.....comes off as a sort of modern fulfillment of rock music’s promise – capable of fully engaging with listeners physically and confronting them with great writing that rips the lid off experience. Resettlement is an impressively conceived effort that, seemingly, comes out of nowhere and makes the case ... is a talent demanding to be taken seriously now." 

Indie Band Guru
"Resettlement’s eight tracks are guided by a level of musical risk-taking and dexterity we don’t often hear while still amply strengthened by an equally rare command of fundamentals... signal a level of inspired ingenuity we rarely hear from modern emerging performers." 

Music Existence
"Red Black Red’s Resettlement is far from your average one off or fringe alternative/art rock effort.....makes the case that Resettlement is one of the year’s strongest releases thus far in 2018. It’s rather astonishing to hear how fluidly Fernando’s writing and arranging talents binds dramatic electronic and guitar textures together that might be otherwise challenging for other acts and artists with similar style." 

Neu Futur
"Resettlement doesn’t pander or take short cuts and the glaring individuality of the release adds weight to its claim on being one of 2018’s most satisfying releases." 

Too Much Love 
"Few albums this year will measure up to the ambition ... pours into his band’s debut Resettlement.....The kinetic energy generated by these eight performances is considerable, however, and rarely takes its musical foot off the audience’s neck.....Red Black Red’s auspicious debut with this release will stick in your memory for some time and we can only hope there’s more to come from this project."
