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.)


Whitelight/Whiteheat also shared Sour Oranges along with a ton of great new music from shoegaze/post-punk bands like BNLX, Magic Wands, Lazy Legs, Pinkshinyultrablast, and lots more.

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!

Ten Million Lights Mix It All Up

Ten Million Lights - Red Tornado single cover

Big thanks to music blog Mix It All Up for making Red Tornado their Song Of The Day on March 19th, 2018.  They also had some really nice things to say.

“Taking some inspiration from 60’s psychedelia but putting their own spin on it, Ten Million Lights latest single ‘Red Tornado‘ is a must-listen. Complete with angsty guitars for the most-part but calming down to something a lot less chaotic in the verses, it’s a track that’s energetic but knows where to ease up where it needs to most. It’s fuzzy, catchy and just when you think the storm’s over, it comes back once more. Only in a good way though! ‘Red Tornado’ is taken from the band’s forthcoming LP ‘Sour Oranges’ which is set for release on 20th April.”
