"Take A Breath with Red Maker’s New Single 'Better in Time'"

Wanting to find that energetic, carefree, feel-good song? Look no further than the new track brought to you by South Dakota’s finest, Red Maker. Consisting of vocalist Morgan Harris and instrumentalist Sam Di Vito, the indie-pop duo are offering listeners a moment of escapism with their latest release, 'Better in Time'.
The past year and a half has been a turbulent time, from being thrown into various lockdowns and adhering to all kinds of restrictions; our world has been turned completely upside down and we have all had to adjust to a new normal. However, 'Better in Time' is the perfect song to provide us with an optimistic perspective on the future, instead of dwelling on any current issues we may be facing.
Originally, the song was written by vocalist Harris, after learning that his wife was going through emotional pain due to financial worries. The song is ‘a promise to her that he was gonna work to get them out of that situation and into the good life’, Red Maker says.
As if it needed any more sentimental value, the track is a completely organic, home-grown product. The drums were recorded at Di Vito’s place of work (a t-shirt printing shop), and the rest of the track was recorded and produced in Harris’ basement.
Opening with a calming arpeggiated guitar melody, the listener is immediately welcomed. This later develops into the much-loved indie-rock composition of big guitar chords and up-tempo drums which propel the listener into a powerful chorus.
The track offers a fresh perspective on a challenge faced by many: trying to stay level-headed amongst our struggles, and remain positive that in the future these struggles will be a distant memory. However, due to the pandemic, it has become easier than ever to overthink, and the amount of anxiety and burn-out felt amongst many people around the globe has sky-rocketed. 'Better in Time' represents the hope and motivation that most of us need to power through these hardships, and in this sense, is a gift to anybody who has the pleasure of listening to the track. - Music Is To Blame


Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Red Maker. I discovered this Duo while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked their compositional approach.

I liked the sound of this band from the very first seconds.

A way of making music that looks to the past but manages to be modern at the same time.

In some passages, the harmonies reminded me of Oasis and perhaps also the vocal timbre. A voice with an interesting timbre that distinguishes the sound of this band even more.

It feels like these guys have spent a lot of time in the rehearsal room to achieve such an enviable musical understanding.

The production is good especially the mix that leaves the right space for each sound element and the song breathes well.

A nice fuck that I recommend to everyone

Better In Time is Red Maker’s Single Out Now! - Edgar Allen Poets

"“Better In Time” marca a estreia de Red Maker em grande estilo indie garage rock"

“Better In Time” estreia nesta sexta-feira, dia 11 de junho de 2021, em todas as plataformas de streaming. O single conta com duas faixas, a música e a faixa instrumental. Ela começa como uma balada indie, e lá pelo primeiro minuto se transforma numa releitura do garage rock com aquela batida dos anos 60 e elementos mais modernos, misturando nostalgia com um otimismo de que amanhã será um dia melhor. O tema é inspirado nas questões que os casais jovens passam, quando precisam de apoio para superar os momentos difíceis, planejando uma situação melhor lá na frente. “A música foi escrita como uma promessa à minha esposa de nos tirar de nossa situação financeira ruim quando estávamos realmente no fundo do poço. O conceito é o que a maioria dos casais jovens passa, que é as lutas do dinheiro. E todas as promessas e planos para tornar a vida muito melhor.”, contou a dupla. - Roadie Music


A promise made, a life to live, and bills to pay; all in hope that things will get “Better In Time“. Enjoy life’s ride with Red Maker’s brand new single. An indie song full of hope, meant as a promise made by a husband to his wife.

After his wife was talking of all of the things she wanted to do in life, ending with a “but we’re broke“, Morgan, with a broken heart, wrote the song for her as a promise that no matter what they’d be going thru, it’s all going to be better.

“Better In Time” is filled with a relatable feeling amongst young couples, imitating the tidal feelings of high and low, doubts and reassurances, all of which most had when in immature or over-confident relationships.

The description “Indie on Monster Energy” couldn’t be more right, as the soaring guitars fit somewhere between indie pop with garage rock undertones. The vibe feels nostalgic, swimming through changing dynamics between the verse and chorus, emulating life’s ups and downs. Morgan’s vocals reach high, as if wanting to hold on tight to the energies above him, while he cries out the proposal to enjoy today’s gifts and wait for the light and thrive of the future.

“We recorded the drums in an overnight session at Sam’s place of work on a hot summer night. Not common to record in a t-shirt print shop.”

We wish the best for Red Maker, as well as Morgan’s relationship, to which we sent the best of vibes and wishes, may the future be bright. - Less Than 1,000 Followers

Red Maker - Self Titled Debut Album



Compared to bands such as Hockey Dad, Hippo Campus, The Cribs, Built to Spill, Pinegrove, and French Kicks, South Dakota indie-pop/rock band RED MAKER is known for their wide range of sound, from catchy and carefree listening to hard-hitting and fast-paced energy.

Morgan Harris (guitar, vocals), Kyle Dowling (guitar expert), Mason Harris (bass), and Sam Di Vito (drums, and vocals) have taken their love of an eclectic range of records to influence and form a unique and diverse discography. Inspired by the pop giants of the 60’s, the restless punks of the 80’s, the world-changing wave of 90’s alternative, and the nostalgic revivalist of early 2000’s garage rock, Red Maker has taken the sounds of the past and found out how to deliver it in a new and refreshing package.

EXPERIENCE LIFE is the message this band sends in every song. More than just a “live life to the fullest” motto thrown lazily around, they preach to experience life at its fullest. All of life’s phases, the ups and downs, twists and turns, and even the good days or bad days. Whatever life has, Red Maker has a song to match perfectly to the moment.

Be sure to keep an eye out for Red Maker at a gig near you, with the official debut album release OUT NOW!
