“’Red Is My Favorite Color’ is about giving your all to someone else without concern for yourself, but it’s also growing from that; realizing it isn’t healthy and your happiness doesn’t depend on them,” JULES IS DEAD shares of their debut single. Check out “Red Is My Favorite Color” below.

Drawing inspiration from iconic riot-grrrl acts such as Bikini Kill and Sleater Kinney, “Red Is My Favorite Color” offers an intoxicating layered vocal effect that enforces a female-forward manifesto. The track is also infested with mid-2000s emo, punk, and pop-punk nostalgia that was made a staple on Vans Warped Tour, similar to the likes of AFI, Hey Monday, My Chemical Romance, and even a touch of pop-punk newbie, Maggie Lindemann.

While JULES had a hand in writing “Red Is My Favorite Color,” they also worked alongside fellow musicians, Eli Hurts, who just released his solo debut album last week, and Curtis Peoples of Kids In America. The track was engineered by David Mohacsi (Three Days Grace, Ascendia) and mixed by Will Borza (Asking Alexandria, Deftones).

Despite this being JULES IS DEAD’s debut release, it’s obvious that they are extremely comfortable and confident in their writing and recording abilities—bringing their vocals to full force alongside the fierce instrumentation of the track. We’ll certainly be on the edge of our seats (im)patiently waiting for JULES’ next release.
