Bands to watch #20: Red Light Company

Red Light CompanyFresh from supporting previous “Band to watch” the Kissaway Trail and Editors at various points in the past few months, London’s Red Light Company are currently pounding the touring circuit around the UK, and hopefully will start making pretty massive waves in the UK music scene soon.

The five-piece sounds like the bastard lovechild of early Placebo and Suede bought up to date for the 00’s emo kids. Androgynous, powerful, driven and still full of emotion, Richard Frenneaux’s voice has at times the nasal whine of Brian Molko, at others the fragile-and-close-to-breaking shout of Win Butler.

Backed up by a deafening wall of guitars that you’ll either love or hate, their initial tracks up on their myspace are pretty strong for a debut, and are almost certainly the reason they were signed a couple of months ago to Lavolta Records.

Definately ones to be watching in the coming weeks and months, as they mature their sound and work on (hopefully) an album. Hopefully (from my perspective) they’ll grow to fill the void left by Placebo at the moment in the music industry.

After the jump: their halloween video, and tour dates for later this month and early May.

Brett AndersonCoincidentally, both Brett Anderson and Beastie boys have announced special acoustic shows today.

Suede’s Brett Anderson is playing Islington’s Union Chapel on Thursday 19 July, for a one off special which is sure to be an amazing show from a guy with much talen that I’ve always admired. Tickets are on sale now.

New York’s finest Beastie Boys are playing the Roundhouse on Thu 6 September after playing the Brixton Academy and Connect the weekend before. These are on sale on Friday at 9am.
