Overcrowded campings made me miss their gig at the Pukkelpop festival, but nevertheless I just know Red Light Company deserve to be mentioned on here.
I got to know them as the support act for Editors in the AB (Brussels), where they effortlessly won the battle of the support acts from Mobius Band (they played a fucking awful set, but Red Light Company would've won anyway).
These five boys - from all over the world (UK, US, Australia, New Zealand and Japan) - have only released one EP so far (With Lights Out EP), but that's enough to make us very curious about their music. Led by singer-guitarist Richard Frenneaux (you'd love him just for his name, and then you haven't even heard his passionated voice - think Brandon Flowers or Win Butler) they already got their hands on a great live reputation and much acclaim for their dramatic and very touching songs. I wonder what their first complete album will bring!
Red Light Company - 'With Lights Out'
excellent live version
