Night Lights / Public / Cordelia and the Buffalo / Animal Flag
With members from Mexico, Texas, Japan, California, and Norway, Night Lights brings together an eclectic assortment of indie, rock, and soul influenced sounds to make people dance and feel feelings. The Boston-based band met in 2012 and has since discovered a balance between profound lyrics, hook-heavy melodies, danceable music, and intriguing harmonic progressions. Their songs touch on existentialism and the confrontation of the self, hoping to discover a truth grounded in music, community, and conversation. With warped soundscapes, intricate riffs, melodic bass lines, colorful rhythmic creations, and captivating melodies and other-worldly vocal effects, it all comes together to take you on an unparalleled audio adventure.
