The Mystery Lights - Too Much Tension!
LP - Indie Shops Version. Limited Magenta / Pink Vinyl with Download
The Mystery Lights's sophomore album on Daptone's rock subsidiary, Wick Records, finds the group digging deeper into their well of eclectic influences, enriching their sound without echoing the past. It mixes the eerie, insistent synth sounds of groups like The Normal and Suicide, the energy and swagger of punk’s golden age, the pop sensibility of The Kinks, and the stark, deliberate execution of Television. The Mystery Lights are taking their idiosyncratic brand of rock and roll to dizzying new heights. It’s as pure as any Nuggets-era obscurity and as heavy as any of your favourite proto punk compilations. Tune in.
