New New Video From The Lights

Posted by Mark Lore on Mon, May 3, 2010 at 12:46 PM

Seattle power trio, rock 'n' roll machine The Lights just released their third record Failed Graves, and with it a new video for the song "New New." As you will see, these guys not only want to rock, they want to encourage the joys of reading.

And do yourself a favor by picking up the album. It's a beautiful mess of twangy, angular guitars and a laser-precise rhythm section. And I'm always endeared by vocalists that sing a little off key and make it work. Nice work.
