Ten Million Lights are very excited to be featured as one of the top singles of 2018 by Forkster, coming in at #12. Check out what they have to say and listen to the Spotify playlist below:

“#12 ‘Mayday’ by Ten Million Lights
Music Effort: Off their self-released 10-song album ‘Sour Oranges’.

Genres Heard: Shoegaze excellence and noise rock/psych rock might.

Song Strengths: This dreamy yet musically erupting tune is massive. Shoegaze supreme quality here as well as a volcanic trippy noise rock ending that just had my ear music modules warming wonderfully! Fans of Slowdive, MBV, RIDE and Swervedriver well, you’ll absolutely ‘love’ this track!”
