We’re not sure as to the background for this one, but it seems the video for Red Light Company’s forthcoming single ‘Scheme Eugene’ has been a viral video success, becoming “the most viewed music video on YouTube in the UK on both Monday and Tuesday this week,” the band’s “people” told us today. Here’s the video – more after the jump.
The video also hit the top 10 in such far-flung places as Germany, India, France, Israel, Mexico, New Zealand, Italy and Russia. All this seems to reflect a building buzz on the band, with the single gaining heavy radio (wut that?) rotation.
Vocalist and guitarist Richard Frenneaux describes Scheme Eugene- “the song reflects my attraction, and the natural human fascination, with the darker side of life – it’s a song partly inspired by the film Christiane F and partly inspired by a car crash relationship between a boy with an addiction to sex and a girl with an addiction to drugs.”
