The Blog That Celebrates Itself

Big thanks to Renato from The Blog That Celebrates Itself for asking Ten Million Lights to do a Track-By-Track on its new release Sour Oranges.  Ryan, Eric, and Emily all contributed to discuss the lyrics, the songwriting and how they felt about the songs.  Renato himself described the record as “Melodious noise”, and “impossible to stop listening to.”

Swan Singing lauds Ten Million Lights

16 May

Thank you to Swan Singing, a blog from Poland who wrote a nice review of Sour Oranges.  You can read the English translation below:

“Obviously, they sing about love. As in my favourite track on the album, “Red Tornado”, in which they blame the Cupid for treacherous shots. And they do it in particularly danceable and charming way of shoegazing pop from the 90. No wonder that they list Jesus and Mary Chain, Swervedriver and Lush among their inspirations. “Red Tornado” smoothly transforms into another outstanding track of the album: “Smother”, in which they included the band’s motto: “drive faster, love harder, die following your heart”.
Another great song would be “Revolt” with its aggressively psychedelic guitars and calm vocal supported by the bass line. Although there are more peaceful tracks on the album, the band is best in rocking psychedelia. Very tasteful sour oranges.”

Ten Million Lights Blow Your Mind

Ten Million Lights - Sour Oranges

Ten Million Lights are excited that they have been getting some press for their new record Sour Oranges.  Check out The freshest sounds that will blow your mind from The Devil Has The Best Tuna who says, “Red Tornado, the new single from Portland five piece Ten Million Lights sounds like The Dandy Warhols with Mikki Berenyi on vocals. It’s a Bohemian Like You for the noughties.” (They also gave some love to fellow Portland band Lazy Legs, one of our local favs.)

Tankboy Catches Up with Ten Million Lights

23 Mar

Thanks to Jim Kopeny from Tankboy for writing up Ten Million Lights and sharing new song Red Tornado.  Jim got to know us during our Saturna days and ribbed us for taking so long to follow up to our first record, and says, “Ten Million Lights have changed their sound a bit, adding more straightforward hard rocking and chugging guitars to the dreamier elements of their earlier music, with a dash of the poppier muscles they flexed in the Saturna days. If “Red Tornado” is indicative of this slightly new direction then Sour Oranges will probably find a welcome place in my music collection.”

Glad you are enjoying the music, Jim!
