MP3: Lightouts – "The Big Picture"

Another from Audible Treats:

Critical Praise for Lightouts:

“Definitely a band to look out for, Lightouts have the potential to be massive.”

– The Music Ninja

“Gowanus duo Lightouts resurrect the melancholy chug and darkly sexy swagger of bands like The Cure, Girls Against Boys, JAMC and Afghan Whigs and impolitely jam it into the drum machine crunch of contemporary locals like Sleigh Bells, Year Of The Tiger and the Death Set.”
– Chris Weingarten, The Village Voice

“I require precisely no convincing that Lightouts are brilliant, but if you’re in any doubt then by all means check out their new single, ‘The Cure For Shyness.'”
– Listen Before You Buy 

“Best New Release”

– Indie Rock Cafe

The Song:

Lightouts new maxi-single “The Big Picture” is out now! The Gowanus-duo’s track offers the bouncy pop of Cut Copy mixed with the crunch of Weezer. The release premiered yesterday on The Music Ninja, who said, “American duo Lightouts were formed just a year ago, but judging by the chemistry on record, you’d think they’d been together forever. Their latest single, ‘The Big Picture,’ is a pop monster which combines the melodies and bounce of electro with the grit of rock to create something very special… Definitely a band to look out for, Lightouts have the potential have the potential to be massive.”

As with the band’s first four singles, they also included a cover tune (“Push”- a deep cut by The Cure), which was premiered by Impose and was selected as the Vinyl District’s Single of the Week, as well as a B-Side track, “Stray Boy,” which was premiered by Filter.Grab a Download on Itunes:
