Recent Harvey Favorite Alert!* Peaking Lights are back at it. While the clouds of pessimism hover, rays of sunshine cut and break thru with two new tracks for healing and conquering the shadows that loom. Little Flower featuring Chloë Sevigny for Regime Des Fleurs and curated by fashion sound guru Michel Gaubert. Over the summer of 2016, Peaking Lights was approached by DJ Harvey’s camp for the instrumental version for sweaty times so for some of you this tune may ring familiar, however, this is the first time it’s been available.... TIP! *Limited initial copies*
The vocal version features Chloë Sevigny with a beautiful melancholic yet powerful chant to Saint Therese an alchemical figure who’s words “What matters in life is not great deeds but great love” ring true thru time. Peaking Lights production is a playfully psychedelic mid tempo love jam with a lot of groove.
On the flip is Conga Blue with the instrumental to follow. An upbeat weirdo disco cut laying it down at 120bpm with some dreamy vocals with a catchy line “through dark and doom can flowers bloom?” as the solid rhythm section holds it together while melodies float by and the clav and synths ride the groove. Originally this cut was released digitally in March 2016 one year later it’s on wax.
Peaking Lights are also preparing to release their much-anticipated fifth record – a double album (title TBA) in April 2017 on their label Two Flowers Records.
Conceived in 2013 to re-release their album, 936, Two Flowers Records is now completely independent, run by Indra Dunis of Peaking Lights. The label follows an art as life ethic where the artist takes control of their work thru DIY mechanisms. Based in Los Angeles, CA.
