Critical Praise for Lightouts

"'The Eloise Suite' is a three-minute 120 Minutes jammer owing to some Berlin-era Bowie chime-rock—and it now comes with a music video that can be best described as 'Kubrick's 'Addicted To Love.'"
- Chris Weingarten, The Village Voice

"...a Gowanus-based duo that sounds a little like what JAMC might sound like with Robert Smith fronting. And if you listen real close, you’ll hear an honest to goodness guitar solo. Chain me down, Martha!."
My Old Kentucky Blog

"Lightouts is a throwback to the joyous, left-of-the-dial guitar rock of the bygone early Nineties."

The Video:

The Gowanus-based fuzz-rock duo Lightouts return with their first official video. The darkly vaudevillian video for "The Eloise Suite" features racy zombie dancers, a man-eating aerialist, and an overall feel that The Village Voice describes as Stanley "Kubrick's 'Addicted To Love.'" Lightouts take viewers down a dark and mysterious road filled with sexual tension and late night antics, culminating in a party scene that tips its hat to Kubrick's erotic masquerade opus. Dance choreography was provided by Jordana Toback, who recently choreographed the latest Cee-Lo video.

"The Eloise Suite" single is about, "Trying to figure out why the fuck we want what we want. Having to deal with the consequences of acting on desires that we might not wholly understand and that probably aren't necessarily in our long-term best interests," according to Greg Nelson, singer for the group. Guitarist/songwriter Gavin Rhodes adds, "The title came about after Charlie Sheen's romp at the Plaza Hotel. The juxtaposition of his kids sleeping in the famous pink suite while he was being "escorted" down the hall fit the song well." Read more from the duo in the accompanying interview with The Village Voice.

The Background:

Lightouts founder Gavin Rhodes started with a simple question: "Robert Smith/Emily Haines, where are you?" But this appeal to fans of The Cure and Metric didn't appear on Craigslist or in the Village Voice. The flyer was posted near the less-than-picturesque Gowanus Canal. Greg Nelson, a veteran of the NYC music scene, responded to the ad and the rest, as they say, is history. The pair exhibit a rare musical and stylistic cohesion: structured bass lines, waves of fuzzed out guitars and vaporous vocals put a new spin on the moody post-punk aesthetic of bands like Joy Division and Smashing Pumpkins circa Siamese Dream. A loosely linked concept album – Want, a meditation on what it means to follow our instincts – is in the works and in the months leading up to the unveiling of the album, the Gowanus duo is set to release a series of singles. With a tip of the hat to an analogue era in the not-so-distant past, each single will feature both an A-side and two B-sides allowing the band to offer up songs complemented by experimentation into deep-cut covers.
