the transatlantic duo arrive with the strum of an acoustic guitar set against the fuzzed out chords of electric guitar & boy/girl vocal tones.

kacey underwood & alice costelloe have been making waves with their tales of teen angst & adult compromise. ‘lights out’, co-produced by underwood & dean reid, emerges from its bedroom beginnings as a collection of 12 deeply personal songs with universal appeal, innately tapping into the innocence, insecurity, wonder & (sometimes unrequited) love & lust of relationships. the album opens with the nostalgic sweep of ‘distant neighborhood’, a blissful, sun-kissed introduction. the raw, confessional ‘talk’ perfectly illustrates the push-pull of relationships, ‘seraphine’ is enchanting in its deep reflection, while ‘homework’ is achingly beautiful in its schoolyard simplicity. ‘locked up’ is a wall-of-sound swoon fleshed out from its early recordings & could well be one of the most raggedly affecting love songs this year.  overall, these are songs which are structurally sparse yet emotively rich, sweet & seductive yet raw & jagged.
