Yup, The Mystery Lights is one of the undisputed favourites here at Gruismeel HQ. Their 'garage soul' is pregnant with restrained frustration, love and energy. In 2019 they released their second full length 'Too Much Tension'; a collection of songs in which reverbs, vibratos and tremolos float by in a soggy pool of punk, soul, garage and upset 60's soul. We can't wait!

Quote: "There's a stoned, analog atmosphere hanging over everything, but there's a fire and toughness, too. Throwback can be wishy washy, resting on the laurels of its nostalgic merits without fully delivering the goods [..] Brandon, like Charles Bradley and Sharon Jones before him, performs with a power and vigor that keeps him undeniable."- Pitchfork
