The first album by The Communards, released in 1986, is a landmark in pop music of the 80s. Founded by Jimmy Somerville, formerly of Bronski Beat, and Richard Coles, the band established its unique style, blending soul, funk and pop, bringing a touch of modernity to the music scene of the time. What immediately strikes the listener on this album is the quality of the sound production. The instrumentations are rich and detailed, with a beautiful use of synthesizers, brass and percussion, giving the album a definitively 80s sound. Jimmy Somerville’s powerful and expressive voice is also highlighted, adding an emotional dimension to each song. It’s also important to note that The Communards were a politically active band, addressing themes such as homosexuality, minority rights and social justice in their music. “Red” is therefore also an engaged album, reflecting the concerns of its time.
