About this item

Red Leather is the 3rd single and first vinyl release from fast-rising North East Manchester indie-rock teenagers Callow Youth – it reached number 2 in the uk vinyl singles chart at the start of October 2019

The track received radio support from Steve Lamacq at BBC 6Music and was XS Manchester’s Record Of The Week

Red Leather showcases a harder and heavier side to the band’s indie-pop songwriting and welds this to clubby, baggy-influenced beats.

“Red Leather was inspired by a pair of red leather pants a girlfriend bought, which I thought were cool as sh**, and a road trip that happened around that same time” explains frontman Alfie Turner on the new song.

The B-side is a remix by Dave Pemberton, the Manchester based producer / remixer who has worked with The Prodigy and Kasabian
