Red Light Challenge Turns It On With A Fresh Pop Single
Red Light Challenge just dropped a crisp and colorful pop banger that touches tastefully on retro-synth, R&B, and an ambient atmospheric undertone that feels like an ode to dance music at times.
"Play Pretend" has some massive hooks and a neon lit vibe that takes you for a drive through the city streets on a Friday night.
Swelling synth pads and plucky guitars fill the air and vocals add to the danceable and endlessly fun pop smash as it all comes together without a hitch.
This single has life and heart along with some beautifully tracked vocals that add even more texture to the already vibrant soundscape.
The beat heads your head bopping, and those classic 80's reverbed snare hits and insanely catchy chorus gets stuck in your head pretty damn quickly.
Red Light Challenge isn't playing pretend with this one. They're playing to win and goddamn do they have a chance.
This track belongs on the airwaves and clubs, parties, and pumping on your playlists in the car.
Upon some further digging into the band, you'll find a killer set of songs and music videos that all have gusto, radio sensibility, and a fresh feeling that comes off bright and polished almost every time.
It's clear this isn't the last we'll hear from Red Light Challenge but it's certainly obvious these guys are paving their way in the pop arena.
Red Light Challenge is a duo and it's a good thing they started this together because it;s introduced us to some outstanding new pop songs and they're doing it their own way.
Even the songs with some edge have this youthful gusto and brightness to them that seems to stick and has become like a staple for the band's sound.
Do your best not to get up and shake your ass to "Play Pretend". We dare you. We'll win too.
There is nothing not to love about this single.
