Gloriously out-of-step and isolated from many of their contemporaries, Screaming Lights are very much a product of their home-town. Steeped in that time-honoured Scouse tradition of forward-thinking, bloody-minded psychedelia, Like Angels shares a fair bit with the likes of fellow Mersey pop-pranksters such as The Teardrops or The Bunnymen.
Very adventurous yet still anchored in that classic Liverpudlian song-writing tradition, the 11-tracks of the album sound far more accomplished then one would expect on a debut album from band just out of school. A truly innovative and exciting debut.
Screaming Lights are: Alan Breen (bass), James Connor (drums), Max Goldberg (guitar) & James Treadell (vocals / guitar).
