Om The Mystery Lights

Historien om The Mystery Lights starter i Salinas, Californien i 2004, hvor de to venner Michael Brandon og Luis Alfonso besluttede sig for sammen at danne et rockband med ekstra tryk på rock. I 2009 udgav bandet sin debut, men det er først efter at de to venner i 2012 flytter til New York, at de danner det band, som nu udgør The Mystery Lights.

Efter at være flyttet til New York etablerede The Mystery Lights sig hurtigt et navn på byens undergrundsscener, og det var også hér, at pladeselskabet Daptone Records opdagede dem og faldt pladask for bandets udtryk. Et mix af groove, skramlede lyde og en uforfalsket og højenergisk rock’n’roll var netop lige nøjagtig, hvad Daptone Records ledte efter til deres nye sub-label Wick Records.

Derefter udkom i 2016 det album, som bandet selv regner for at være deres reelle debutalbum: ’Mystery Lights’. Albummet er spækket med stringente rocksange, der vækker minder om en svunden tid og sender ens tanker i retning af bands som MC5, The Kinks, Ty Segall og Thee Oh Sees.

Den 10. maj i år udgives bandets næste album, ’Too Much Tension’, hvorfra det indtil videre er muligt at smuglytte singlerne ’Traces’, ’I’m So Tired’ og ’Someone Else Is In Control’.

Interview med The Mystery Lights

What can the audience expect from the show?
“We shall see soon enough!”

What can you tell us about the setlist?
“It’s made akin to the model of a 45-hour long six flags rollercoaster.”

What merch do you bring?
“We have new tour posters which our guitar player (Luis Alfonso Solano) designed and hand screen-printed (only 100!), we have new fall 2019 EU/UK tour t-shirts (which LA also designed), we have our first LP, and our newest one “Too Much Tension!” (in three different exclusive colors!). we also have CDs and a 45 with a side b which features our friend/a magical entity Coley Gold, that you can’t find or listen to anywhere else except on that specific physical record! Definitely snag that. And lastly we have patches, tote bags and some stickers.”

Which song do you prefer performing live?
“I, personally, love playing “Flowers in My Hair, Demons in My Head” and “Without Me” because those are songs I hold closest to my heart and ones that scream from the depths of the buried parts of my soul. Some good old solid shadow work at play there. Also “Goin Down” is a fun one.”

How have your most recent concerts been?
“Fun! Tense. And Smokey.”

How should the audience be killing the time until the show?
Bandet foreslår, at man ser denne video med The Screamers.

Anmeldercitater

“Follow Me Home sounds like 1966, but like it’s happening all over again, organically and without premeditation, and it rocks.”
(Blurt Magazine, 2016 – læs hele anmeldelsen)

“Sure, originality awards will not be forthcoming here, what we have is the sound of a band fizzing with joy and holding up the sounds they adore while yelling ‘we fucking love this music’ and doing it brilliantly. It’s not derivative, it’s devotional.”
(The Line of Best Fit, 2016 – læs hele anmeldelsen)
