Last Night Electric
Lightwires, an alternative rock band with electronic influences, first came together in early 2007. The band, consisting of two American multi-instrumentalists, Jeff Taylor and Jon Herbach, and Dutch drummer Sjoerd van der Sanden, immediately 'clicked' with their shared yet diverse musical interests - among others, Radiohead, the Beatles, the Arcade Fire, Joy Division, Clark and TV on the Radio - and from the start they set about making their own unique sound, melding these influences together in a unique and inventive way. Their music has been variously described as "edgy, intimate, romantic music with more than enough charm and hooks to keep you by their side" and "music with an immediacy and passion that grabs you by the throat." From the first listen it is apparent that Lightwires have an indie rock soul which is reflected in unforgettable hooks, incisive lyrics and dynamic live shows. Their dedication to creativity ensures that the music stays exciting and unpredictable.
