Spark Houston Teases New EP via “Red”

Posted by on October 5, 2021

Toronto, Canada based hybrid artist Spark Houston returns with a new single “Red” off of his forthcoming debut EP. The song showcases his often troublesome relationship with confrontation, competition and ambition. The unique sound he brings to the table on this one blends elements of indie rock and hip-hop, kind of like Gorillaz did in the 2000’s era, but with a different vibe all together. Check out a quote on the release below and stream “Red” above now!

Red is my competition, my drive, my energy and my bravado. In polychrome as a whole project (split amongst three EPS – Red, Blue, and Green) Red is the manic high before the crash of the depressing blue. Red is me rapping as well as anyone alive, knowing entirely that there is no human force that can stop me. Red is high octane. Red is lewd” 

In the hook when the line “Red mine, red mine, red yours” is said, it’s an invitation for all of us, both myself and the listeners, to soak in the atmosphere of my intensity. The pitch shifted voice is used as a motif on red, hinting that, although it feels good to be in a place of righteous anger, that perhaps there is a darker element, a morose, a sadness, to that kind of energy. All of that, however, will be more adequately explained on the next EP, Blue.
