Spotlights' debut album, Tidals, is out now on Crowquill Records. Consisting of Mario and Sarah Quintero, a married couple based in Brooklyn, Spotlights rocks with a heavy, dreamy sound, roaming somewhere in a fugue state between My Bloody Valentine's shoegaze and The Melvins' sludge.

Buy, here:


"90s rock, luscious psych and rattling sludge... Like a slowly evaporating dream... Makes you want to headbang with tears in your eyes."

"A nice dose of heavy, atmospheric rock. Think Hum, Shiner, Failure, Nothing, etc. and you've got an idea."


"Tidals is a modern shoegaze classic. Is it dreamy as fuck? Yes, but what really makes this band's music stick to my ribs is that it packs the punch-to-the-gut of a sludge album... They are just creating music on their own terms... A must have."
