“Red Flags” by Blonde Diamond

From Canada comes the electrifying and talented indie band Blonde Diamond with the introspective sonic creation that is “Red Flags”. With this exquisite and absolutely intoxicating blend of melodies and lyrics, they paint a picture that is so raw yet so instantly engaging and vivid. The track unfolds with verses that explore the harsh reality of what a toxic relationship can be and how at times we loose sight of what’s in front of us. The track understands that at times the heart and the body blind themselves to not see the red flags that make themselves present. But it’s not only a story of falling down a rabbit hole that seems impossible to get out of, but it also serves as lesson to remind others that it is possible to move on and move forward from this.

The soundscape is exquisite and offers our senses and imagination a world to explore and connect with. So listen closely and fall prey to the powerful touch of this fantastic must-listen gem. Enjoy!

“Post the breakup of a very long relationship and at a particularly vulnerable moment in my life, through a chance encounter I found myself in a relationship that was—on its surface—everything that I was looking for. The romance, the infatuation, the lust. It was the type of affair that you only read about in books and see in films.

However, the red flags had presented themselves from the get-go and I initially ignored them. I wanted to see the good in this person, and believe that I could be a strong and positive force in their life. When it finally got to the point that I allowed myself to accept that it was abusive and emotionally manipulative, I felt stupid and ashamed that I could be so naïve and easily coerced into such a spiral of entrapment and darkness.

I wanted to write this song not just as a form of healing for my own experience, but also as a message to others that you CAN walk away. That you’re not alone. And that it’s easy to get swept up and lose perspective when you’re in the eye of the storm.”
