Kill the Lights Buffalo of Love

Featuring experimental sounds, heartfelt lyrics, intense transitions, it’s obvious that from beginning to end of this ten-song album Kill the Lights got comfortable in every corner of the indie rock box. The intertwining vocals are like a colourful parachute of harmonies draped over a circus of attractive transitions within each song. Using clean progressions on the bass to complement the bends on guitar and fast-paced drumming, the band use the basics as a starting point. But, as the album continues, Kill the Lights experiment with instruments and songwriting, ultimately using points of elevation as a way to showcase their ability to create a big sound while simultaneously paying attention to detail. Although the album is reminiscent of other indie rock bands creating danceable, ambient music, KtL does it in a successful way and are worth checking out. (MapleMusic)
