Earthquake Lights unveil video for single "Moonlight" + announce LP





Earthquake Lights unveil video for single "Moonlight" + announce LP

We've never been jazz fans - we are indie kids here at The Deli NYC, although we can certainly appreciate other genres - but admittedly, after 20+ years spent listening to similar variations of major and minor chords (with maybe a seventh thrown in for good measure every now and then), it feels incredibly refreshing to hear chord progressions that challenge our ear. NYC quintet Earthquake Lights just unveiled the video for their single Moonlight, a song based on a succession of chords that may sound slightly dissonant at first but that resolves beautifully in a subtle series of tension and release moments. The track's songwriting and delivery betray an experienced and skilled group of musicians with jazz leanings, and as a matter of fact lead singer/keyboardist Myles Rodenhouse and company are veterans of the NYC scene and have been involved in all sorts of musical projects, including a jazz orchestra. The took the opportunity of the video premiere to announce the upcoming release of their debut LP Distress Signals, the follow up to their 2012 debut EP Bangups & Hangups.
