Pale Lights

Pale Lights release video for latest single "Jean, Bring The Flowers"

Brooklyn's sparkle-indie group Pale Lights ended 2017 on a productive note with the release of their LP The Stars Seemed Brighter, which has gained a good amount of praise since its unveiling. Frontman and songwriter Phil Sutton delivers poetic lyrics over Andy Adler's mellifluous guitar and Lisa Goldstein's subtle drums, while Suzanne Nienaber provides the summery harmonies in the background. That sunny feeling comes through in the music video for "Jean, Bring The Flowers" (streaming), a homemade four-minute capture of impromptu backyard jams while relaxing with friends in the sunshine. While you wait for the winter cold to pass, warm your ears and eyes with the video for "Jean, Bring The Flowers" below. - Will Sisskind

Pale Lights' well crafted indie pop

We stumbled upon Brooklyn Pale Lights' bandcamp profile and got tangled up with their charming and jangly indie pop. The band released two records in 2014, a full length entitled "Before There Were Pictures" and - a few weeks ago - the "Fourteen Storise Tall" EP, which takes their music to new peaks, featuring songwriting reminiscent of bands that touched our hearts in different eras, like Lloyd Cole & the Commotions and Belle and Sebastian. From what we heard, the EP's title track (streaming below) is the band best song to date, check it out below. - photo by Timothy Krause

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!
