The new single from Spotlights 2019 album, Love & Decay. Buy or stream here: http://smarturl.it/LoveAndDecay.

The video, which is shot from the perspective of guitar player Mario Quintero, is a nod to ‘90s alt-rock videos, with the band saying, “we love the way they didn’t take themselves too seriously and kind of make fun of those who do.”

“The video loosely represents what ‘Xerox’ is about as a song. Poking fun and those who use facades in life or in music, as well as showing that you don’t have to take yourself so damn serious cause you make art,” said Quintero, who also directed the clip. “Where the song takes a more serious angle towards those who hide behind falsehoods while perpetuating hate and fear, the video provides some comic relief.”

Consequence of Sound said the eight-song album combines “elements of post rock, shoegazing, and sludge metal into a unique amalgam of sound that is both heavy and heavenly.” New Noise dubbed the record “essential” and Invisible Oranges said the release “is a kind of sonic parallel to Deftones, who often deal with the same flickering unnameable emotionality within their mixture of dream pop, shoegaze, and heavy music.” Love & Decay is available now via http://smarturl.it/LoveAndDecay.

Spotlights is Mario Quintero (guitar/vocals/programming), Sarah Quintero (bass/vocals) and Chris Enriquez (drums). Mario handled the production work on the eight-track offering. The band’s Ipecac debut, Seismic, arrived in the Fall of 2017. Ghettoblaster said of the album: “They avoid many of the common pitfalls associated with some shoegaze or sludge artists in that the album never feels like it drags. Sometimes doomy, sometimes romantic, it’s as heavy as it is beautiful.” Revolver said Spotlights “balance delicate atmospherics” and “crushing sounds,” while Treble Zine expanded on that sentiment, saying: “… the Quinteros make some truly huge-sounding music, much of it crushing. There’s an ethereality and grace about it, however, which makes the ambitious expanse of Seismic consistently interesting throughout its hour-plus runtime.” During the subsequent tours, Spotlights recorded an Audiotree session, which can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/eS4hKYOhqe0. The band released an EP, Hanging By Faith (https://spoti.fi/2E3LJxs), in June 2018.
