The tracks on this CD are a mixture of blues, rock, prog, jazz, folk, dance, African rhythms, Indian melodies, computer beats and synth sounds, screaming guitar solo’s, industrial crunches, minimalist lines and unusual lyrics.
in 2013 we released a new album ‘The Blood that we Share’, Volumes 1(Scarlet) and 2 (INside), containing a wide mixture of genres, styles and experimentation.
Volume 1 is a series of rock, prog and experimental tracks
Volume 2 is a more chilled out rock, acoustic and ambient tracks

The wind that Blows the waves

Scarlet INside, although loving trial and experimentation in the studio and rehearsal room are a live band and perform regularly. No two gigs are ever the same, no song is ever played the same way twice and there are often new and old and trial songs played at our gigs.

How about a little something different then, well that's what you get with this lot. No particular genre as they play a broad spectrum. Describing themselves as experimental they kind of remind me of a modern day Pink Floyd with a mix of instruments, objects and sounds that take you to that lil trip out place in ya brain. Vocally great, Lyrically Superb and the music is just awesome in its own unique way.
The mastermind and sole member of Scarlet Inside, Kevin Kennie, displays his monstrous music talents throughout these thunderous music landscapes. The music took my ears to lands of new sounds and then to progressive rock waves. This was really deep, moving music, built strongly with voice caverns in perfect placed
settings. FORKSTER respects the music efforts and talents of Scarlet Inside.
‘One of the best examples of progressive music to come out of Glasgow in a long time. You can never predict what type of show you will get from this experimental trio. What’s guaranteed is that you’ll be completely blown away by their superlative musicianship. Check out their latest EP, ‘The FAll’, on i-tunes’

‘known collectively as Scarlet INside and their EP is called ‘The FAll’, certainly influences abound in this EP. Not those of other bands however but sounds and sonic textures from other parts of the world. Take the eastern textures in ‘The FAll’ for example, that bring the kind of variety rarely heard in the output of a Glasgow band. You don’t doubt the maturity of the participants either with ‘Dungeons and Fishtails showing a near theatrical demeanour reminiscent of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band. None of the songs here are three minute, radio friendly snapshots of ice-cream and summer days, but that is hardly a criticism. ‘The FAll’ is the work of an intelligent and committed band.

Review Scarlet INside – THirty RiVers to CRoss – by Emma Roebuck. Progradar.
Musically this album feels like the by product of Fripp, Gabriel, Mclaughlin, Byrne, Hammill, and Page along with many others in a melee of musical combinations. Imagine all these converging in one head and the outcome of 2 years in the studio. Having said that, this is Kennie’s own product to the core despite you being able to isolate those influences.

a most delectable buffet is of the deep thought variety. Scarlet INside is the thinking person's prog band fills the room with layers of intricate, delicate sound fragile as antique crystal yet strong enough to pierce your skull with the finesse of a skilled surgeon. Scarlet INside crawls inside that secret place and begins to exorcise the demons using their own darkness as a scythe, cutting them down with the precision and meticulousness of a detective drawing a confession from a hardened serial killer.
The guitar cuts through you like a howling arctic wind as the vocals wrap themselves around your mind like a silk scarf. Scarlet INside isn't happy skimming the surface–they plunge fathoms below, hitting nerves previously left unscathed…
