Red Light Runners: Legs EP

Davy Mac (guitars/vocals and production), Carl Win on bass, Phil Murray (drums) and singer Sharron West are Red Light Runners. Their funky new EP ‘Legs’ is a three-track, nine-minute EP taste of what the Auckland rockers have on offer. Their toe-tapping beats may take a few listens to gain a full appreciation, but it’s well worth the investment of time. Thumbs up for the addition of full track lyrics in the CD sleeve. Along with their name, the CD artwork by Davy Mac, Tony Hulme and David Sayer indicates a muscle car enthusiast may linger within the team. Mac’s gritty vocals laced with West’s haunting harmonies are a combination that transition flawlessly from the EP’s beginning to end. Dr Gray is a highlight with its storytelling melody and well-placed guitar solo 90 seconds in. From a marching band drumline to rattlesnake tambourines and funky boom bass tones, Red Light Runners deliver a live music gig right to your speakers. A rock ‘n soul collection that carries psychedelic undertones with solid production from evidently passionate musicians.
