“Black Light White Light have an inherent likability about them… Undoubtedly promising”
Drowned in Sound
“Resurgent modern psychedelia.. BLWL were separated from Black Rebel Motorcycle Club at birth. ”
Rolling in fresh off the waves of their latest single, “High Like A Hurricane,” Black Light White Light is set to return with the second single “Operators” as well as B-Side Running taken from their upcoming new album “Gold Into Dreams” to be released on the 6th October in the UK and Europe. Produced by the talents of Chris "Frenchie" Smith (Jet, The Dandy Warhols) the band has gone on to supporting the likes of internationally renowned band The Telescopes (UK), Crocodiles (US), Crystal Antlers (US) and The Soundtrack Of Our Lives (S) whilst gaining heavy support from the likes of Artrocker, Big Cheese, BELLA UNION label owner Simon Raymonde of the Cocteau Twins and Amazing Radio.
Black Light White Light were formed in 2009 by guitarist, singer and composer Martin Ejlertsen. After some overlap and changes in the band's line-up he is now primarily joined by brothers Adam Winberg (drums) and Tobias Winberg (bass) with a handful of selected musicians joining the band live too now and then. From the beginning, Black Light White Light had an international outlook, seeking inspiration and collaboration over long distances. The debut EP "Directors Cut" released in 2010 was recorded in Gothenburg, Sweden with producer Johan Forsman (The Soundtrack Of Our Lives, Jens Lekman, Haakan Hellström). Later that year the band went to Los Angeles, CA to record the debut album "Infrared Daylight" with American producer Rick Parker (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Dandy Warhols, Von Bondies, Miranda Lee Richards) released on the band's own imprint Record Records on September 26, 2011.
Coated with infectious melodies that reflect a sense of optimism there is an irresistibly alluring quality that captivates our attention and seduces our enthusiasm. A musical approach that expresses an enthusiasm for experimentation and lengthy instrumental passages. Reminiscent of classic psychedelic rock acts like The Byrds, Jefferson Airplane and The Seeds we can't overlook the fact that parallels can also be drawn from the more British/ Manchester leaning sounds whilst embracing a more abstract agenda. B-Side “Running” is a journey, one in the hopes of discovering the meaning of true art.
Stay tuned for imminent updates as Black Light White Light set off on a UK Tour this season.
