SPARROW Unleash Red

Perth heavies Sparrow have released a new single and video ahead of a their EP, Digital People, set for release on April 6. Red is the single – check out the film clip below.

Vocalist Sean Hendry says of the song’s lyrics: “I wrote the lyrics to Red winding down on the couch after a massive night out. One of those late-night news breaks came up about the lottery for a one-way ticket to Mars in 2020 where 24 to 40 candidates would be picked to basically inhabit Mars for the rest of their lives. Anyone could apply by submitting a 30 second video explaining why they should be chosen. It would be a new society, with new laws. I wondered what kind of people would apply for this and what kind of psychological testing they’d need to get through to be chosen. The song is basically the story of one such person.”

Sparrow released their debut album Deathpop in the summer of 2013 and went on to play across the country, playing the popular Hyper Fest twice in Perth and the Rock the Bay festival on the east coast as well as a slew of national and international support slots including Twelve Foot Ninja, Superheist, Emery, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Dead Letter Circus, and Tonight Alive.
