Is sludgegaze a thing? Do genres even matter any more? Who cares to both of those questions, because Spotlights' music is damn good and you need to hear it regardless.
Spotlights' new album Love & Decay is out on April 26 and their new song "The Age Of Decay" is a spacey, reverb'ed out trip right into the heavens. Sure it's a heavy track, but Spotlights manages to make all that low tuned riffage really feel hopeful and plush.
Here's what guitarist and vocalist Mario Quintero had to say.
“’The Age of Decay’ encapsulates everything we do on this record. Musically, it has some of the heaviest moments as well as the most dynamic and melodic. It shows little bits of what we get into throughout the entire album in one track. Lyrically, it reflects on personal points in my and Sarah’s relationship, how things grew from when we met, moving around the country and chasing this thing together. The juxtaposition about love against this backdrop of a world that can be hard to deal with.”
