Immediately infectious, the beat here is fast and inviting, the duet is intriguing and adds a layer of mysterious chemistry to the lyrical declaration. The arrangement is smart and effective, with a hook that works equally well as a broken-down gospel stomp and an orchestral machination.

The feeling is light but meaningful, and the takeaway is a making-lemonade-from-lemons sort of message that is perhaps completely appropriate for the times. It's a fun song that will be on your repeat for some time.

Running Red Lights is an Indie Pop band from Canada. This song is featured on our Roots Collection playlist.
