Red Light Company are a five piece act from London. Their three track demo arrived in my inbox today, and as a break from marking (and posting yet more old stuff here) I gave it a listen.
And then I played one of the songs again.
Look, I know the Arcade Fire are kinda becoming a sacred cow that bloggers love (and I do like them, it's just that bloggers seem to keep going on about them)...but I really do reckon these guys might be the British answer.
Melodies that worm your way into your brain after only a listen, more atmosphere than bands have had for years...and 'With Lights Out' is soon to be a single.
I can't say you heard them here first, 'cos that wouldn't be true...
