The EP's classic "new wave' inspired songs found a unique space in current popular music that intrigued and drew a wide variety of fans. LIGHTS ON quickly found their songs being requested and used in film and TV shows such as HBO's "Hung", FOX Family's "Greek" SHOWTIME's "United States Of Tara", CW's "The Vampire Diaries" and "Gossip Girl"! Using this momentum and excitement from the music's reception - LIGHTS ON developed into a serious live band in the Southern California scene even opening for international acts like Peter Bjorn and John and Loney Dear, as well as impacting in the bustling New York scene. "Here Comes The Ocean" is LIGHTS ON’s sophisticated debut album, offering a seemingly diverse range of sounds that come together as a whole with a common LIGHTS ON dna that rings through. Recorded over various sessions between 2007 and 2009, each song on "Here Comes The Ocean's” seems to live in its own creative moment and time –giving a sense of a band embracing its creative strengths for a fuller statement as an album. Inspiration of past and present fuels “Here Comes The Ocean” with sounds reminiscent of Johnny Marr's 12-String, a splash of raw garage-rock, hints of Farfisa organ, mood altering vintage synths, fuzzed out bass hooks, and swooning vocal melodies with powerful harmonies.
“Here Comes The Ocean” is a modern pop record first and foremost, recorded with full-fidelity as a necessity to the strength of the music. On July 6 "Here Comes The Ocean" will be released on VINYL/CASSETTE/digital.
