Hailing from Rochester, New York State, but now based in Brooklyn, New York City, Earthquake Lights take their band name from the nebulous lights which appear in the sky after an earthquake occurs. Their debut album, ‘Distress Signals’, was recorded at London’s famous Abbey Road Studios, and is set for release early next year. ‘The Fix’ previously released as a single, comes with an intimate band’s eye view video.
Comprising Myles Rodenhouse, Cameron Underhill, Evan Douaihy, James DiGirolamo, and Stephen Helms, Earthquake Lights met and formed while they were all studying jazz at music school. Additionally, lead singer Myles has been playing classical piano since he was eight. The group take their inspiration from indie rock legends such as Radiohead, Beck, and The Who, and they incorporate elements of such classic production in their own work.
The clip takes place live in the studio at Douglass Recording, founded by Myles in Brooklyn, and which has seen artists such as Cage The Elephant, Talib Kweli, CADE, Bombay Bicycle Club, and Arturo O’Farrill make it their recording home. In this video the camera captures, one by one, each member’s emotional response as they play – it’s a deeply personal and effective method.
