Today we’re super proud to announce that Esquire Magazine has debuted our new single, “My My.” Check the write up and song here: http://www.esquire.com/blogs/culture/lightouts-my-my
This is what writer Miles Raymer had to say about the track:
Not a lot of rock bands consciously style themselves as singles acts, although the pop world in general is moving back away from albums and adopting the kind of listening habits that ruled in the days before Sgt. Pepper’s made anything less than a 12-song set seem like an incomplete artistic statement. Lightouts of Gowanus, Brooklyn, on the other hand, are enthusiastic singles makers, which suits the snappy, punk-fortified jangle-pop that they specialize in, and it seems to be working, judging by the fan base they’ve accumulated since they released their first single in 2011. (Actor Adrien Grenier is on record as a big-time supporter.)
Their latest, entitled “My, My,” was recorded at Converse’s Rubber Tracks studio in Brooklyn last year, and it sounds kind of like a Television song transmitted via the Strokes and topped with a vocal that combines Springsteen grit and glam rock falsettos.
