“What Defines A Villain” EP Launch
Runway Lights bring their ferocious live sound to the Workman’s Club on Thursday Sept 19th to release their debut EP What Defines A Villain
“Runway Lights are a five-piece experimental,
alternative rock band from Dublin. The band’s sound has been described as a delicate balance of lulling sweetness and dark nastiness with influences ranging from meticulously constructed alternative pop to the dynamic soundscapes of post-rock.
In their short time together, they have already earned
a reputation for their ferocious live sound. The band’s debut single ‘Crash’
was named Hot Press ‘Track of the Day’ and was launched with an appearance at the Whelan’s ‘Summer Watch’ festival. Their follow up single ‘Broad Strokes’ tells a dark tale of an unwanted encounter through weaving, finger-picked guitar arpeggios, unsettling
atmospherics and a driving hypnotic beat. It was named ‘Song of the Day’ on Joe.ie and was followed by an appearance at Whelan’s Ones To Watch festival 2019.
“Runway Lights may not be a name that you are familiar with – but it’s one that I’m certain you will be. They create music that on one hand holds a loving lullaby at its heart but works in just the right amount of darker undertones. Meticulously arranged with a unique and almost haunting vocal providing a face to the music” – Hot Press Magazine
Runway Lights launch their debut EP, ‘What Defines
A Villain’ on September 19th.”
