Band lights up stage

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - LIVE ’N’ LOUD -

a heart-warm­ing re­sponse to their self-ti­tled de­but, Gold Coast quintet The Lamplights are en­er­gised to take their sound to an even wider au­di­ence with their new al­bum, What Love Is. Since form­ing three years ago, The Lamplights have re­leased three al­bums, the lat­est of which they un­veil with a show at their ‘‘spir­i­tual home’’ of sorts, The SoundLounge, to­mor­row night. The group sold 6000 copies of its de­but, played swags of shows and won three gongs at the Aus­tralian Song­writ­ers As­so­ci­a­tion Awards. Now Ryan Git­toes (vo­cals and gui­tar) and his band­mates Ash­ley Per­row (slide and acous­tic gui­tars), Ja­son McGre­gor (acous­tic and elec­tric gui­tars), Mat­tie Barker (bass and har­mon­ica) and Mik Easter­man (drums) hope to take their songs and sound to mu­sic lovers in­ter­state and over­seas. Recorded at Stu­dios 301 in By­ron Bay, the al­bum is de­scribed as ‘‘a melodic dis­course on love, life and the world’s con­cern for the in­di­vid­ual as well as the in­di­vid­ual’s con­cern for the world’’.

The Lamplights launch The SoundLounge, Cur­rumbin RSL, to­mor­row with Good Oak (fea­tur­ing Tom Busby). Doors open 7.30pm. Tick­ets are $28 at the door (and in­clude the al­bum).
