I believe the term I have heard to describe Losing Scarlet’s unique style is “pretty metal”. I figure this makes sense. It’s kind of groovy at moments, a little eerie power trip at others, and pounding with speed at others.
“Learning to Bleed” is an impressive display of growth, as the band really comes into their own. The elements are more organized, the lyrics as bloodstained as the melodies are on fire. Blood and fire. I think that’s really how I would describe Losing Scarlet.
The dynamics of “Learning to Bleed” are striking, great for headbanging or just driving down the road and singing along. Honestly, Jodi’s style is solid and lovely even when she doesn’t push herself, but when she does it’s an interesting change in tambre (just the way anyone’s voice sounds to another listener).
This Chicago quartet have released their self-titled Ep, their debut full-length “Left To Burn”, and “Learning to Bleed”, and their style just keeps on improving. “Learning to Bleed” will definitely grab you and keep your attention throughout.
