Off-Island Guests

 

Road Engine Dreams

 

Road Engine Dreams (aka “R.E.D.”) is a cataclysm of Indigenous energy, originality, and rock’n’roll.RED is a manifestation of the steadfast, and unyielding strength that it takes to triumph over life in the east side and beyond. The chord changes and melody in minor mixes the beat of the drums and hard riffs, almost like the uphill battle of life. The sonic qualities, tempo and rhythm makes this music so vivid, one can almost feel the pain in which we suffer or the freedom of taking a deep breath on a beautiful day. Almost like the border between music and noise so is music and culture in which Road Engine Dreams writes about in their music.   Based in East Vancouver, Road Engine Dreams albums were written about the life experiences of the band’s daily life. Compared to the likes of AC/DC, Guns n Roses,SoundGarden, Metallica and Tool
