SCARLET SAILS Unveil New Song “Boy You’re Wrong” & Announce Debut Album, Future From The Past


New York City has fostered the careers of an incalculable number of musicians. The eclectic cross section of musically inclined people scattered throughout the Big Apple yields an exciting volume and diversity of sound. Piano-based rock band, Scarlet Sails, are determined to make a memorable mark on the cities epic rock roster. The band is the creation of stunningly beautiful and talented Russian-born singer/songwriter Olya Viglione and her husband, Dresden Dolls drummer Brian Viglione. Their sound rests in this perfectly balanced place of classic and modern rock, showcasing their signature style with subtle nods to iconic artists like Bowie, The Ramones, and Led Zepplin – they’ve been said to sound like, “if Queen and Alice Cooper were to remake Okay Computer.” Brooklyn Vegan described their last single “I’ll Be There” off their self-titled EP as, “dark piano pop that’s not a million miles away from Dresden Dolls’ world, and it’s got a wailing guitar solo that sounds right off classic rock radio.”

Joined by band members Mark Kohut (guitar) and Jesse Krakow (bass), Scarlet Sails are preparing for the release of their debut full-length album, Future From the Past, due out April 10th. The album tells Olya’s story, her journey to the states from Russia and the adventures, both good and bad that she’s faced (see Psychology Today article for full story).


“It all comes together – New York’s melting pot of cultures, rhythms and tones, dreams that come true, fears that get in the way, the future that was destined to be, the past that defines the course, and the present that gets created on the way – all in the songs that I wrote throughout past 7 years that I lived and breathed here – played by a kick ass band and recorded at Atlantic Sound Studio in Brooklyn by Grammy-winning production team, Nic Hard and Diko Shoturma, and mastered by the legendary, Greg Calbi.”

Today, Scarlet Sails have unveiled the first song from the project, “Boy You’re Wrong.” (Video) The song has impassioned lyrics juxtaposed by beautifully delicate string and piano instrumentation. The chorus hits and you feel the bold, self-confidence of Olya’s message about wanting to connect with someone, “You say you don’t need me, but boy you’re wrong!”
