The Tailormade – Rum & Red Bull
The former Radio 1 Breakfast Show House Band ‘The Tailormade’ bring a taste of the Caribbean to their latest indie summer anthem ‘Rum and Red Bull’.
Fresh off the release of their latest E.P release ‘Life of Sampson’, which saw a string of sensational videos accompany it including the dating show ‘Take Me Out’ inspired ‘Mr Perfect’, the trio drop their latest release just in time for their tour alongside 80’s favorites ‘Madness’.
Constantly lashing out surprises and creative flair with their twists on visuals, their new endeavors or their unstoppable drive; whether that be winning the ‘Best Buskers’ award from the Mayor of London or popping up on stage alongside Michael Buble, the trio have now taken inspiration from the unlikely form of Beenie Man and his classic track ‘Drinking Rum & Red Bull’.
Combining their cheeky personalities and lyrical delivery with melodic guitar riffs and a catchy drum-beat, it’s a track that has an immediate familiarity to it. Buoyantly detailing the peaks and troughs of a holiday romance, the Rum & Red Bull visuals, shot on a retro video camcorder, capture two young love-birds romancing by the seaside, capturing perfectly the ‘boy next door’ charm that The Tailormade have become synonymous with.
Championing a sound that falls into the spectrum of indie and pop The Tailormade are acquiring an ever-growing cult following. Consisting of members Jack, Aaron and Matt the trio’s huge personalities, honesty and charisma has been captured perfectly in their music, which is undoubtedly a huge part of the appeal and why they are so relatable. Having been part of Radio 1’s ‘Secret Busker’ series where they took part in a ‘busk-off’ against the likes of The Vamps and James Arthur (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L90rpwpCqg4), they have also received public support from Gary Linekar, XFM’s Phil Clifton and Emma Thompson. They have played crowds surpassing 15,000 people and supported the likes of Olly Murs, Madness, Jess Glynne, Mullally and the legendary Tom Jones and have BST with Michael Buble, RoundSound Festival, Camper Calling and the iconic Madness tour in the diary this Summer.
