about

South Mountain Lights was born in the Arizona desert in late 2004; a trio with a common goal of creating music that was equal parts heavy and delicate, graceful and dense, immediate and deep. Initial songwriting efforts yielded creations with a dynamic balance not unlike lulling ocean waves crashing violently on a rocky seashore; inspiring the band’s original name, Pacific. As the music developed, the group settled on a moniker that was a reflection of their Phoenix connection as well as their lustrous sound. Elements of Laughing-Stock-era Talk Talk, Bloc Party and Dif Juz all found their way into South Mountain Lights’ music, as well as crunchy Zeppelin-inspired riffs, Radiohead-like experimentalism and heavy dub stylings; bound together by drummer Jason Farrell’s tight, Stewart Copelandesque intensity. The band's self titled debut is a thoroughly moving and powerful musical document by three musicians who are true to their craft.
