Maintaining unprecedented momentum as the red-hot rising band to watch, THE SCARLET OPERA unveil a brand new single entitled “Big City Thing” today via SB Projects/Republic Records. Listen to “Big City Thing” HERE.
On the track, the band said: “From rural Pennsylvania to the flamboyant streets of Los Angeles, this record is a playful reflection of the many years we’ve spent on the pursuit of happiness.”
Watch the lyric video for “Big City Thing” below.
The Scarlet Opera lives up to the title of “Big City Thing.” Recently, they’ve sold out major shows on both coasts, packing the historic Troubadour in West Hollywood (not once but twice after popular demand!) and filling New York’s Bowery Ballroom to the brim. Plus, they ignited the stage at the Fuck Cancer Hero’s Gala, which impressively raised $1.4 million for research and accessible healthcare. Just last week, they opened for indie legends Phoenix at the Majestic Ventura Theater.
“Big City Thing” lands in the wake of their debut single “The Place To Be.” In addition to gaining traction at DSPs, they have earned enthusiastic acclaim from the likes of LA Weekly and Pass the Aux. The latter hailed the Troubadour gig on September 13th as “quite simply the show of the year.” Check out the band’s captivating performance of “The Place To Be” live at the Troubadour HERE.
Get ready for a whole lot more from The Scarlet Opera in 2023.
The Scarlet Opera:
Inspired by the Scarlet Lettering of the misunderstood and misrepresented – the music, the shows, the glamour are all devoted to the outcasts – to the sexually liberated – to those who don’t come from wealth – to those who are divine.
The Scarlet Opera represents passion, lust, fury and beauty.
Fine art for the promiscuous.
Fine art for the bold.
Fine art for all.
About The Scarlet Opera:
Fusing the grandeur of the theatre with the raw energy of rock and roll, The Scarlet Opera – a five piece band hailing from Los Angeles – offers an escape into the throes of love, lust, glamour, and passion. Formed as ‘Perta’ in 2016 and reborn in 2022, The Scarlet Opera is led by lyricist and frontman Luka Bazulka, whose authentic narrative and vocal prowess are matched only by the musical talents of band members Colin Kenrick [keyboard], Daniel Zuker [bass], Justin Siegal [drums], and Chance Taylor [guitar]. The band’s origins are tied to one fateful night when Colin, upon witnessing Luka perform an inspiring solo vocal set, enlisted long time friends and seasoned musicians Daniel, Chance, and Justin to provide a new dimension to what was already brimming with potential. Word of packed venues and a captivating live show soon drew the attention of SB Projects and Republic Records, who turned to hit songwriter and producer David Stewart [BTS, Jonas Brothers] to collaborate, inspire, and further ignite an already growing fire. With the recent release of their debut single “The Place To Be” and now “Big City Thing,” The Scarlet Opera are poised to make their mark.
