Cemented as 2023’s red-hot rising band to watch, THE SCARLET OPERA proudly presents a brand new single entitled “Alive” today via SB Projects/Republic Records–listen to “Alive” HERE. It notably heralds the arrival of their anxiously awaited debut EP Comedy out March 24th. Pre-order/Pre-save Comedy HERE.
On the song, delicate piano underscores frontman Luka Bazulka’s nuanced delivery. The momentum builds as the track culminates into a chantable chorus, “Life keeps rolling so, keep the party alive.”
The band describes the inspiration behind “Alive,” saying “To know such intense heartache and pain, comes the ability to feel an equally visceral amount of joy and love – this is what we have come to understand about life – and we’d like to feel it all before we go.”
Next up, The Scarlet Opera will make their late night television debut on CBS’s The Late Late Show with James Corden next Tuesday, February 28th. Be sure to tune in!
“Alive” follows the fan favorite “Big City Thing.” Instinct Magazine touted them among “Bands To Watch” and noted, “It is a rare occasion when a band can play a sold-out show in both Hollywood and New York City after only releasing one song, but this is exactly what happened with the Los Angeles band known as The Scarlet Opera.” LA On Lock proclaimed, “‘Big City Thing’ is a flamboyant celebration of artistic freedom that gets in your ears and then in your soul.”
“Big City Thing” landed 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 sold-out Troubadour gig last fall 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.
