This is the lead single "Bless Your Heart" from In Light Of. The two member project lives in different cities without any mutual connections. They met when Sandy responded to a job posting and quickly bonded over a shared appetite for the kind of boundless sonic exploration found in post-rock (and the like). It's been a long-distance relationship ever since. They 're truly the perfect pairing and have a song writing formula that works perfectly. Light Of have never written a song together. That is together in the same room, or even the same city. Yet, all five songs on this debut EP, Little Treasures, were pieced together from ideas shared from one device to another, many kilometers away. And now for the first time, through the magic of technological advancement, it's in your hands to listen and consume.
This new song "Bakkah: The History of Humankind", was initially just a poem about humanity as a whole. When it began to rhyme Emay basically just ran with it. It was also a great opportunity for him to experiment with his writing as he was always self-conscious about using a more poetic/metaphorical style of writing so with this track Ihe allowed myself to get completely lost in that form.
For the video, him and the director, Aaron Hall, bounced a lot of ideas off of each other and eventually Aaron thought of using riot gear for the video. The video is a battle displaying Emay's ideological development and the conflict of ideas taking over and building off of one another.
The Edward Furlongs are a New Jersey-based endeavor in American music, comprised of Dan Gugger and Nick Afflitto. The project is a tip of the hat to the pioneers before them, a reflection of their collective experiences and a bullish reaction to the state of modern music.
Although Dan and Nick grew up playing music in the same thriving New Jersey music scene, they didn't meet until performing together on the Vans Warped Tour in the summer of 2009. After spending several years performing music for other bands, they decided to create music of their own, with a few core principals in mind.
The most significant of these is the idea that there is a void in modern music that yearns to be filled. It is is a composite of old and new, a return to the clarity and simplicity of rock music from decades past while reflecting the experiences of those living in the world as it is today. If the band achieves its ultimate goal, the music should reflect a desire for something simple and familiar, but modern and unique; these are candid recordings that are, if anything, under-processed by today's standard but hold honesty and individuality that honors both the musicians creating it and the people and experiences that have made their lives better.

The band consists of Phil, Si, and Erik, respectively on guitars, bass & keys, and drums. These three talented musicians set out to create a lush, diverse and textural musical backdrop, borrowing from influences as diverse as electronic music, psychedelia, rock and even jazz with a minimalistic flair.
