- "CELLARS" Obsessed with Love and 80s Synth-Pop

- Red Queen Signs Gothic Tropic frontwoman, Cecilia Della Peruti
Los Angeles' Gothic Tropic introduces some hard edges to the playful world of psych-pop. The brainchild of Cecilia Della Peruti, Gothic Tropic keeps the vibe playful, but measured and dark with a unique lead guitar and vocal style that recalls catchy elements of pre-punk 70s acts such as Television, and Can. The type of music Gothic Tropic plays is comparable to jazz in the way its creation is approached: its success is based upon each member's ability to collaborate but also individually flourish.
- Red Queen Music Signs New Orleans' The Wave
When you hail from the straight-no-chaser city of New Orleans, you have no choice but to be brazenly real. The Wave is a boombing lyricist who made his debut on Lil Wayne’s SQ5 from the Young Money general’s Squad Up mixtape series. “Having an education and coming from the slums of New Orleans, and seeing it all, is all tied within my music. I made a soundtrack for hustlers; music to inspire growth in a myriad of facets. Wherever you are, Million Dollar Day represents the real American dream that you don’t read about. It’s all about making it out of the trap. It’s about resonating with everybody that has struggled in life. I’m trying to do it for my generation and just be a different type of artist and give a different type of outlook and not just some glorification, you feel me?”
