Red Light Acid Test emerged from London’s alternative rock scene in 2019. Embracing a dark, tarnished vision the four-piece sharpened their sound by gigging around the capital’s back room bars. Merging grunge’s spit & fury and post punk’s angular rhythms, RLAT create a sound with brooding intensity.
The band from the very beginning have been working with the Mercury Prize nominated producer Ian Davenport (Band of Skulls, Gaz Coombes, Slowdive) in his Oxford based Courtyard Studios. In 2020, just before the world went into lockdown, RLAT recorded 3 songs, Lose Myself, Elephants, Relapse. The band decided to release the songs as singles across the year. All 3 songs were an immediate hit with the radio and press, generating positive reviews and strong airplay on radio stations throughout the UK and Ireland.
