The Dull Blue Lights are a band in between. Drawing from influences as varied as Motown soul, Nuggets psychedelia, and Jamaican rocksteady, the Philadelphia-based group’s definitive blend of cascading harmonies, screaming guitars and relentlessly grooving rhythms lives somewhere between each one. The band calls this in-between sound Basement Soul.
“We acknowledge that genre exists, but have no interest in confining ourselves to being just a soul band, or a mod band, or a reggae band, and on and on,” lead vocalist/guitarist, Todd Fausnacht, explains. For the band, any type of music they enjoy can become part of the Dull Blue Lights Sound. “For us personally, coming from a scene full of vintage throwback bands, it’s a refreshing change.”
Formerly known as The Snails, The Dull Blue Lights transformed immensely during the writing of their debut album. “When we started writing this record, we were one band, but by the time we finished recording, we were a different band entirely,” Fausnacht elaborates. “We unintentionally told a story of transformation and metamorphosis, which ultimately ended with us becoming The Dull Blue Lights.”
