“#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!”

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

24 Apr

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.)
