About

Ipecac band Spotlights occupy the space between a push-and-pull of jarring metallic catharsis and sweeping distortion. Even as either side vies for supremacy, neither extreme ever completely tightens its grip, allowing waves of melodic vocals and expressive sonic sorcery to breathe in the middle.

If you dont know who Spotlights are, or havent heard their name, then you havent been paying attention. Mario, Sarah and Chris are one of the hardest working new bands out there - plugging away on tour after tour, earning every fan they have, whether it's Chino Moreno, or the bartender at a local club. During 2016, the group gained traction with their debut album, Tidals, earning coveted spots on tours with Deftones (we did say Chino is a fan), and Refused. Not long after, they caught the attention of Ipecac Recordings, releasing Seismic in 2017, touring relentlessly (again, enjoying word of mouth amongst musicians to land outings with the Mr. Bungle, Quicksand, Pallbearer, etc) and worked right into the studio, releasing Love & Decay in 2019. Consequence praised their unique amalgam of sounds that is both heavy and heavenly, Brooklyn Vegan said the band balances the pretty with metallic sludge, and Invisible Oranges said the album leans on the ambient and krautrock inspired edges of post-metal. In the wake of their 2020 EP We Are All Atomic, Kerrang! observed, That a band as heavy and romantic as Spotlights have become a fixture in the rock scene Is impressive; that theyve done so in such a short period of time is tremendous.
