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.”

Lots of love to IndieCentralMusic for including Ten Million Lights in their new music spotlight called Discover and sharing the song Red Tornado.  They said lots of nice things including, “Gorgeous vocals”, and “Their songs get stuck in your head, in the good way.”  They described the sound as, ” fast and loud dreamy psych-pop that’s a little heavy, but all-organic and tasty.”
