The Blacklight – Aurovine

The Blacklight – AurovineThe debut album from West Yorkshire & Manchester band the Blacklight. Intrinsically northern in attitude and ambition, the Blacklight capture a vibrancy and energy reminiscent of some of the great musical giants of the north of England. From the laugh out loud funny ‘Older Women’ to the pop-emotional intensity of ‘Tooley’s Tune’, written for the death of a teenage friend in a tragic hit and run accident, from the angry rant of ‘Twisted Animation’ to the chilled and easy style of ‘Smoke Rings’ and ‘Summerblime’, the sheer scope of this debut album makes it an unusual one, and the originality of the songwriting gives it a style all of its own.
