The Video:

(February 12, 2013 – Brooklyn, NY) Hieroglyphics members Pep Love and Opio are announcing the formation of a new duo, First Light. As First Light, Pep and Opio will release a new album, Fallacy Fantasy, on March 12th, and to coincide with the album release, will also embark on a month-long tour this spring. First Light has released the album's first single, "Lighters," which features the duo's Hieroglyphics crew, with guest appearances from Casual, Del the Funky Homosapien, and A-Plus.

The formation of First Light is rooted in Hiero's celebration of spontaneous musical collaboration. With First Light, Opio, who also is a member of Souls Of Mischief, and Pep Love take their cue from the finest characteristics of "Golden Era" hip-hop, while, at the same time, battling the paradox of their attraction to and antagonism against the pervasiveness of the apathy and debauchery in today's pop culture. Hence, the title of their debut album Fallacy Fantasy.

This spring, the duo will be taking their new music on the road, with the Stress Free Tour. Kicking off on March 20th in Fairfax, California, with stops along the way in cities like San Francisco and Fresno, before heading to Utah, Idaho, Oregon, Montana, and New Mexico, the tour will make 25 stops before ending on April 19th in Salem, Oregon. Throughout the tour, First Light will be giving fans samples of their most recent work in conjunction with a campaign of behind-the-scenes footage and music videos.

To celebrate the announcement, First Light has released the album's first single, "Lighters." Featuring production by Unjust of The Chosen Few, "Lighters" is a track held together by solid groove and a drone of distant 8bit sounds. The video, edited by Unjust and directed by Casual, takes us from a dark forest where Casual tells us we are "witnessing hip-hop's beautification" to Pep Love’s yellow-lit basement, where he flashes into a shrouded and crystalline red-eyed creature. Esoteric themes and extraterrestrial references abound as Opio lets us know, "I see the future like George Orwellian theory." In contrast to the uncanny verses, the chorus is a sing-along anthem, complete with lines like, "Put your lighters in the air till it burns your thumb."
