ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Wrapped up in a sound that recalls the fuzzed guitarwork of Doves, the bass driven swagger of Editors, and the angular melodies of Echo & the Bunnymen, Northern Light Exposure draw them all together into something taut, shimmering and cinematic.

The group – “one of the most exciting bands to emerge from south-east London in recent months” (Alex Ross, promoter, New Cross Inn) - formed in early 2015. Inspired by the aurora borealis, their name aptly tags their atmospheric multi-layered post rock, while their sound nods to their forefathers: the like of Doves, Interpol and Editors.

Songwriter and guitarist Andrew Glen and Tom Cavanagh originally founded the band off the back of a shared love of 80s bands Echo & the Bunnymen, The Sound, and single malt whisky. The strength of Glen’s songwriting soon caught the
attention of bassist Lee Anne Burgess and drummer Greg Zielinski, who swelled the band to a four-piece. They decided to perfect their sound slowly, taking up residence in a basement in Greenwich that they acquired from the dream-pop duo Still Corners.

With a clutch of new songs under their belts, they turned to local producer Pat Collier – the mastermind behind the sound of so many of the bands that inspired them, including The House of Love, and The Jesus & Marychain – to produce their first single Embers which (EVENING STANDARD) critic Fiona Mountford called ”the anthem of these summer months”.

After a string of London showcases, they returned to Collier’s Perry Vale studios in south-east London to begin working on An Honest Way of Living. The shift from major to minor key has brought with it swirling guitars, pulsating synths, and thunderous drums, while still retaining the icy riffs of Cavanagh’s guitar work, Glen’s moody melancholic baritone, and Burgess’ glowering basslines.

Having just returned from touring with Chameleons Vox, the band are already working towards their next EP. Armed with a variety of new songs, renowned producer Youth (Killing Joke, The Verve and Echo & The Bunnymen) will be taking the reins on this recording, and steering the big sound of this band towards the next level.
