The Dull Blue Lights are a band in between. Drawing from influences as varied as Motown soul, Nuggets psychedelia, and Jamaican rocksteady, the Philadelphia-based group’s defining blend of cascading harmonies, screaming guitars, and relentlessly grooving rhythms lives somewhere between each one. The band deems their in-between sound Basement Soul. Their electrifying stage show, says Philadelphia radio personality John Vettese, dances “between practiced performances and unhinged spontaneity.” The quartet is fronted by the smooth gravel voice of Todd Fausnacht and his sweetly chaotic guitar. Behind him are Ben Parry on the four-string, Matt MacLeod on the bones, and Josh Parry on the skins. The Dull Blue Lights’ sophomore album Apocalyptic Snow is available to stream everywhere.
