The Mystery Lights Share "Melt" Video Via Nerdist | Debut LP Out Now On Wick Records

THE MYSTERY LIGHTS SHARE "MELT" VIDEO VIA NERDIST
 

DEBUT LP OUT NOW ON WICK (DAPTONE RECORDS)
 

WATCH & SHARE: The Mystery Lights - "Melt"
"The Mystery Lights have developed a sound redolent of ‘60s garage rock, complete with jangly guitars, surfy basslines, and soda-bottled angst." - Nerdist
Today, the Mystery Lights share, via Nerdist, the video for the track "Melt" from their debut self-titled LP. The video was shot in The Vinyl Revolution record story in Monterey, CA, where the owner of the shop plays the protagonist who becomes enthralled and tormented by a possessed record. The footage is supplemented by fuzzy graphics, which complement the psychedelic undertones of the song.

Earlier this month, NPR's David Dye featured two tracks from the Mystery Lights' debut LP on his'World Cafe: Next' weekly segment. He praised the band who "combine the aesthetic of [New York]'s downtown dwellers (like The Velvet Underground) with a present-day urgency."

Pitchfork also shared their love for the Lights' sound," saying that "there's a stoned, analog atmosphere hanging over everything, but there's a fire and toughness, too. [Mike] Brandon, like Charles Bradley and Sharon Jones before him, performs with a power and vigor that keeps him undeniable."

Their “In The Studio with The Mystery Lights” video takes a behind-the-scenes look at what took place at Daptone's House of Soul Studio as the band worked to create Wick's inaugural release and what is now a record that deserves to be raved about.

The band is currently on tour across the States, opening for Night Beats for the first half of their dates and headlining the remainder.
