Described as "deliciously sweet Glo-Fi basement party jams," Denver natives Ethan Converse and Sam Martin are electronic duo Flashlights. New to electronic production, Ethan and Sam started Flashlights as a way to explore their desire to make warm, summertime music while trapped in the cold Denver winter. The lush soundscapes and pop twinged melodies hint just as much to great Brit-pop of yesteryear as they do to more recent contemporaries such as Teen Daze or Memoryhouse. On their debut EP "Hidden Behind Trees", Flashlights reaches for tropical climes, but at times can do little to hide the darkness that comes with being trapped within a cold winter. Its this dichotomy, creating an honest push and pull between light and dark moods, that allows Flashlights to stand out from their peers. With their standout single "Holidays", bouncing electronic chords lay the groundwork for Converse's floating vocals, creating a song that feels bright and dark at the same time. "Glowing Eyes" at times sounds almost apocalyptic in nature with its growling and driving bassline, all the while tying the record together with its stick-in-your-head singable chorus. Constructive, multi-layered songwriting suggest that the band is just getting started. Named one of Westward Magazines 12 acts to watch in 2011, featured in NME's Buzzworthy Artists, as well as playing high profile shows with Toro Y Moi, Millionyoung, and Miami Horror, Flashlights is set to hit the festival circuit this summer while beginning work on their followup to "Hidden Behind Trees".
