The female-fronted band Red Calling is a modern/metal hard rock quartet with a slight trigger pull on the side of an electronic metal-based in Tampa, FL, Red Calling has a collaborative sound and stadium-level volume that electrifies its audiences. Lending their unique uptake on metal on their latest release, “Torture”, the listener is tantalized by the strings, and then in full cock loaded gears it grinds the explosion of vocalist Jessica Pons. “Torture” leads the listener closer to throwing the metal horns over and over again. Clearly, Red Calling is here to drop their solid metal sound right where it belongs… in a stadium of metalheads. The band features Jessica Pons on vocals, guitar, and keys; Javier Pons on lead guitar and synth; Deven Starr on drums; and Luis Pons on bass and synth.
Hard Rockers Red Calling has debuted their new single and music video “Torture.” Led by frontwoman Jessica Pons’ strong and exotic vocals, the track is about not hanging on to one’s hurt anymore and finding relief through a special relationship, a calming voice. This unique voice can silence the torture inside our heads. It’s been a crazy year full of anxiety, fear, depression, uncertainty and mental health issues have been a second pandemic.
This hard rock track flirts with metal but maintains a melodic center. “Torture” mixes heavy riffs, lots of synths, and catchy vocal melodies. The dynamic voice of frontwoman Jessica Pons moves between soft melodic lines and desperate singing. Guitarist Javier Pons provides two-hand tapping guitars and tons of head-banging riffs. Bassist Luis Pons and drummer Deven Starr provide a solid pulse and backbone that gives the song the perfect foundation. – Red Calling
