Red Light Company kick off Leeds Festival day two
Red Light Company kicked off day two of the Leeds Festival today (August 23) with a fiery set on the Festival Republic stage.

The newcomers - whose members hail from America, Scotland and New Zealand - were in impressive form, playing a 20-minute set of punchy indie-rock.

Recent single 'Meccano' got the biggest cheer, whilst 'Scheme Eugene' was introduced by singer Richard Frennaux as being "a song about death".

Red Light Company played:

'Sinking Ship'
'Scheme Eugene'
'With Lights Out'
'Arts and Crafts'
'When Everyone Is Everybody Else'
