Red Light Company – Arts & Crafts

There is the sneaking suspicion that Red Light Company should never have started out as a small venue kind of band, but that their soaring epics have always just been waiting for the arenas to come calling. Arts & Crafts only reinforces that, with obligatory piano intro subtly opening the door to crashing crescendos, massive choruses and thundering melodies. This is a song that is fully committed to the anthem blueprint, and it must quite literally be knocking walls down in venues across the country, searching for the crowd figures it yearns for. That Red Light Company continues to support such a claim with tunes likes this however, is the real trick.
