Turn On The White White Lights

The White White Lights are a violent bunch from Austin, Texas that bash you over the head with a broken keyboard and then serenade you with twisted love songs. Off kilter and potentially off their rockers, this is a band in love with the melodic as much as they are in love with all things demented and they're only to proud to sing about it.

Their layered songwriting entangles the delicate and violent in equal parts, creating vivid and potent songs that both seduce and destroy. Fans of Sonic Youth, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Pixies, Butthole Surfers, and similarly iconic bands will likely appreciate what The White White Lights have come up with.

Experimentation, diversity, and a penchant for the unusual all serve as a foundation of their creativity which has ultimately lead to an an uncommonly large catalog of songs which highlight their ability to tame chaos and charm string theory int some for of raw beauty and musicianship.
Their debut EP is currently available in special edition CD and digital format as well as a 7" vinyl and cassette single that leads up to their full-length album in April 2010.
