Mario Quintero from the band Spotlights joins me on Revelator #238 to talk about the band’s latest release titled “Seismic”.
The band is currently finishing up a winter tour with Pail Bearer. Mario and I also talk about the bands recent run with the Melvin’s and the band’s futue touring plans for 2018.
Mario also hinted that the band will be working on new material as well.
On this episode you’ll hear a track “Learn To Breathe “from the band’s latest release.
Spotlights are the Brooklyn-based married couple of Mario and Sarah Quintero.
In Spotlights, the Quinteros summon a supreme sound, equally heavy and dreamy. A tarpit sludge-rock foundation is blanketed by layers of shimmering shoegaze. Their debut full-length Tidals was released on Crowquill Records in the spring of 2016 as a follow up to the synth-laden, doom-pop EP, Demonstration. Tidals' songs rock hard and memorably, bringing to mind hints of bands, from Failure to My Bloody Valentine to Godflesh to Smashing Pumpkins and beyond.
Spotlights were handpicked by Deftones to support the band, and Refused, on three weeks of their 2016 summer tour. The band quickly followed up with a second national run in September with If These Trees Could Talk.
