We See Lights - We See Lights EP

They see lights, and we see a bright future

Single Review by Ally Brown | 23 May 2008
  • We See Lights
Single title: We See Lights EP
Artist: We See Lights
Label: Self-Released
Release date: Out Now

If the thought of repetitive chanting and ethereal angel choruses brings you out in a rash, you can rest assured that young Scottish collective We See Lights ain't no New Age hocum. Instead they're a dream-pop-flavoured indie band that could really blossom if they focus on that distinctive sound, as highlighted on the title track to this self-titled debut EP. The maudlin violin and heavily-strummed guitars on Try cleverly depict the strain of the singer as he describes a failing relationship, while the performance of Shy's fantastical story is worthy of a Broadway musical - or Bedlam, at least. The EP isn't all great, but if they're looking at lights, we hope it's distant stardom. [Ally Brown]

Available now from the band's MySpace page for £5
