Denver’s electro-pop darlings FLASH/LIGHTS have been turning heads ever since their Binary Records debut EP “Hidden Behind Trees” earned them a mention in NME’s Buzzworthy Artists, and was named one of Westword Magazine’s best releases of 2011. Featuring a rotating cast of Denver musicians and fronted by vocalist/producer Ethan Converse, FLASH/LIGHTS is built on a foundation of smooth vocal hooks enveloped by modern synthesized production that is unique for being both understated and impacting at the same time.
The group has earned an impressive following thanks to their intoxicatingly fogged-out live show. FLASH/LIGHTS have been fortunate enough to shared the stage with the likes of New Order, Passion Pit, Toro Y Moi, Tycho and Miami Horror, and have been cutting their teeth on the festival circuit with recent performances at SXSW, CMJ, UMS, SnowBall, Treefort, and the Westword Music Showcase.
2012 marked the release of their sophomore EP, So Close To Midnight, to rave reviews. Released via Denver’s HUG Records, SCTM is a brighter, more dance-oriented collection of songs, and boasts remixes from Brothertiger, Slow Magic, and Fabian. The group followed up So Close To Midnight with a couple of singles, first the release of “Scarves” in the fall of 2012, and another more tropic-toned single, “All My Love” in July, 2013.
FLASH/LIGHTS are currently in the studio recording their follow up to So Close To Midnight, and tease that they’re taking things in a deeper, darker direction.
