The Lights – Live on The Janice Long Show on BBC Radio 2

The Lights – Live on The Janice Long Show on BBC Radio 2
19 May 2009 from midnight


The Lights new single, recorded at The Magic Garden Studios in Wolverhampton, is produced by renowned producer Gavin Monaghan, who has recently recorded with Travis, Editors & Kings of Leon.

The Lights are a lovely burst of energy, consisting of five bright-eyed individuals with the heart and determination to be heard all over. Their sound is like nobody else, unique, eclectic and intimately epic with a touch of old enough to know better! With a highly promising array of unique sounds, ranging from soft and passionate to loud staggering moments, they’ve perfectly blended each other’s influences and abilities to create one magnetic and appealing force.

For the band, 2008 saw the release of the highly successful single The Score, which openly challenges the guitar band stereotype, described by UK MUSIC REVIEW as ‘Full of charm, energy and personality’. This was followed by the release of their 5 track EP The Fair Weather Travelling Companion, which saw the band moving away from the pop/rock sounds of The Score to something more folk orientated. The EP was met with a wealth of positive reviews.

Last year saw The Lights gig extensively in and around their hometown of Birmingham and in London, and a larger promotional tour is the plan for 2009. The Lights performed a memorable unplugged acoustic set on the Introducing show on BBC WM in April last year, which went so well that they returned to the station in November to do a full live session.

The live Lights experience is electric and frequently spine-tingling, rather than a bunch of college kids recycling one catchy hook, they actually sound like a real working class band with the fire, heart and poise that playing and writing together for years has afforded them.
