Watch The Red Light Company "Mecano"

A new Brit pop band is hitting the scene. Meet hotly tipped London based five-piece Red Light Company who are releasing their new single "Meccano" through Lavolta Records next Monday.

The melodic qualities of their pop-rock reminds me a little of The Killers. Vocalist and guitarist Richard explains that "Meccano," is based "around an imaginary conversation between two old friends and the distance growing between them as their lives go on. It's about the regret of a passing friendship."

Red Light Company released their debut EP "With Lights Out" in May, which garnered them critical acclaim. BBC's Zane Lowe declared them to be "a band everyone’s shouting about, so so good" in fact he liked them so much that he has booked them for a session to broadcast on Wednesday August 13. DJ Jo Whiley raved  that "Mecano" is "a song that’s heads and shoulders above everything else, grabs your attention straight away… love it."

Sounds like a band to keep your eye on.
