Intimate Video for “Casper” Debuts on BlackBook
“The track is a perfect showcase of what makes Russian Red so talented: she can perfectly combine rocking guitars, trendy synths and her signature blend of hook-laden, beautiful honestly like nobody else can.” – BlackBook
“Her presence is sweet, sultry, and badass, and you wouldn’t believe her voice from gazing at her small figure. Her vocals are unlike anyone else’s: quirky and winding with a wispy falsetto and Spanish accent.” – MTV Iggy
Guitar strumming, Rolling Stone covergirling, MTV award winning, and all-around fun loving, Russian Red has been stealing hearts on her world tour. Her first US dates begin mid-October.
In anticipation of the US leg of the tour, Russian Red partnered with BlackBook Magazine to premiere the acoustic video of “Casper”. The video teases all the greatness fans will experience on tour, so, expect to lose yourself in the live instrumentals and unique indie vocals. Keep your eyes peeled for more of these intimate sessions from her latest, concept album Agent Cooper.

During the last few years, Russian Red has become one of the most renowned artists in the Spanish music scene. Russian Red’s singer, Lourdes Hernández, has an exceptional voice and an innate ability to communicate and captivate a variety of audiences. She broke through the music scene in 2008 and became THE indie phenomenon with her debut album I Love Your Glasses (achieving a Gold record in Spain) and soon began performing on the main Spanish stages (Primavera Sound Festival, FIB, Jazzaldia, among many others), and reaching audiences in the USA, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, Argentina, Costa Rica, Germany, Holland, Belgium, etc.
Her music has been included as part of commercials, TV series and movie soundtracks. She received a Goya Award nomination in the category of “Best Original Song” for her track in the film Habitación en Roma (2010) by Julio Medem and sung Disney Pixar´s Brave (2012) main sound track, among others.
Indie darlings Babes (one of whom happens to be Lourdes’ roommate/lover) will be opening.
