FRIDAY COVER UP – No Cure For Lights Out

This isn’t normally my kinda thing, but some upbeat Robert Smith on a dreary Friday seemed like a good idea. The band is Lightouts, a Brooklyn indie duo who formed over a mutual love of The Cure front man and Emily Haines from Metric, not a bad launchpad really. This track has managed to fill me with some fuzzy bubblegum – I will admit that this sounds more like The Killers from their first album era covering 80s Springsteen than The Cure, but that is awesome too. Anyway, check it out – I reckon it does the trick.

Have a good weekend!


  1. Hey Brendan- cheers for the post! Would you mind correcting the band name? It’s Lightouts. No worries, happens all the time.

    Thanks again!
