No Lights - Dream Eraser 12" TGIC119


Preorders not part of the 20% OFF SALE

There isn't an obvious phonic principle that connects the post-punk, indie pop of No Lights to more than two decades of Bay Area hardcore and metal. Perhaps it's more a family resemblance than anything else, sharing members with Kowloon Walled City (Ian Miller, Dan Sneddon), and a formidable list of past projects that includes Early Graves (Matt O'Brien, Dan Sneddon), Set Your Goals (Israel Branson), and Grace Alley. Like the streets of San Francisco in a Hitchcock movie, there is something familiar here, but never obvious whether it’s more beautiful or more troubling than real life. The references don't evoke nostalgia, aren't reverential. And trying to pinpoint specific influences is like trying to tell the difference between the digital and the analog, between tubes and tape and bits and bites: an exercise in feeling rather than precision. No Lights released their double EP, "Stay Awake, June Bug," just before the world shut down in early 2020. 2023 brings their debut full length record, "Dream Eraser."
