Album Notes
Songwriters Kevin Howley and Scarlett Flynn crossed paths in 2006 when OG member and childhood chum, David Puzak, elected Kevin to fill the recently vacated role of drummer for the freshly formed female fronted pop project, Running Red Lights. The pair bonded over Jeff Buckley and Joni Mitchell and shared the same puerile sense of humour. 13 years later the songwriting duo is still nudging along half-baked ideas into smart, bittersweet, gorgeous folk/pop songs. Howley specializes in funky, soulful pop; Scarlett in folksy specificity with assiduous attention to lyric and melody. Never before have their styles overlapped more evidently than in Running Red Lights latest release, soul/folk ballad, ‘Calls of Prudence’. The song has a haunting cadence with a nostalgic vibe that is evocative of Motown ballads from the 50’s. The lyric conveys the kind of intimacy that can only come through an earned sense of wisdom.

‘Calls of Prudence’ is a moodier, more sorrowful track in comparison to the bands previous, most recent releases. Scarlett’s voice and lyrics beautifully capture the familiar ache of uselessly yearning to return to a time of youthful abandon. The production practices a measured restraint that gives the song a dreamy, spooky quality. The track requires time and patience but the payoff is so worthwhile.
