RDGLDGRN: “I Love Lamp”
Every. Second. Of. This. Is. Infectious. Reston Virginia’s RDGLDGRN (pronounced RedGoldGreen), recent remnants of the now defunct The Five One, are great grandsons of everything the Adidas donning men of sideburn and sunglass were aiming for when they pioneered the original collaboration in 1986. A perfect guitar riff paired with lyrics that beg to be sung along with: “I Love Lamp” has got it all. It’s just too bad that it’s a ready anthem for the discerning female, and an all too familiar tale of loss for the male. Distance does not make the heart grow fonder. Distance makes the heart go wander.
My personal scars aside, “I Love Lamp” is your new ear hobby. We’re all up in the kool-aid a band named RDGLDGRN is pouring down. Download the song and watch the lady laden video below.
