Red Sea plays ATL Short Cuts film fest

Tonight (Thurs., March 3), Red Sea closes out part two of the ATL Short Cuts film fest. at the Palomar Hotel. Over the last two years the group, made up of Kyle Sherrill (vocals/guitar), Stephen Luscre (guitar), Mick Mayer (bass/vocals) and younger brother Patrick Mayer (drums), have zeroed in on a slurred and melodic pop sound that was cultivated mostly in the outer reaches of the I-285 perimeter at suburban church venues not far from their home base in Suwanee. But after venturing into the city to play, mostly house shows at first, a deluge of local buzz ensued. Now, on the heels of their second release, a Band Camp E.P., dubbed Weird Problem, Red Sea is a burgeoning darling of the local music scene, and justifiably so. The four songs that make up Weird Problem are driven by an ominous, jangling energy that is at turns scratchy and filled with booming tension and reverb. The music is catchy but uneasy, and introspective to a degree that transcends their short time together, while building intrigue in the open spaces of their droning popcraft.

Tonight's show is free and the films get started around 7 p.m. Red Sea plays at the end of the night, probably around 8 p.m. The Palomar Hotel is located at 866 W. Peachtree St.
