Seeing Double: Two tunes from Boomlights
My description of the band Boomlights is “blues rock.” Fans of that genre conjure the souls of Stevie Ray Vaughn and maybe even Led Zeppelin. They are used to soulful vocals and ripping guitars that make you feel like you’ve been ripped apart and put right back together again. There’s definitely a theme of resurrection in the blues rock style.
Here we have two tracks from the impressive band Boomlights. “Visitors” is a slow, even introspective track that will make you think hard on your life’s decisions. Then there’s “Behave Like Animals,” the kind of song that gave the Blues such a horrible reputation back in the early 20th century. It’s dark and dirty, with guitars that reflect the grit and dirt of the song’s origins. It is, you might imagine, about something sultry and seductive. But I’ll leave that to your discerning ears to decide. Nevertheless, you might want to wash your headphones after this one… but the site can’t be all sunshine and lollypops. Boomlights help us keep in touch with our more carnal side.
