PEAKING LIGHTS

 

Peaking Lights is an electronica/dub duo consisting of Indra Dunis and Aaron Coyes. Their sound is also described as 'krautrock' or 'psychadelia' by some. After forming in 2006 due to an improvised recording session, the two moved to Wisconsin together and played gigs together to earn gas money. The first record Peaking Lights made was known as 'Clearvoiant' and was made using minimal equipment, such as a small radio in place of an amp and a couple of tiny keyboards.Their debut album ‘Take 936’ was released in November 2011 on the Weird World label.


Vivid, nocturnal and sensual, the eleven lean and lithe pop songs of 'Cosmic Logic' follow 2012’s much-lauded 'Lucifer' and are another progression in the band’s ever-evolving sound; their free-wheeling, far-reaching production and mesmeric, mantra-like songwriting pushing into brighter, bolder spaces than ever before. Recorded by the band themselves in their newly built Los Angeles studio, many of the luminous sounds used on ‘Cosmic Logic’ were designed by Coyes himself over the eighteen months of its making. The record was completed with the help of Matt Thornley (DFA, LCD Soundsystem) at C’mpny Studios in LA in the spring of 2014.
