Austin, Texas’ Lights Like Autumn is an up-and-coming alternative-rock group looking to make their impact. Though this project is still fairly new, altogether the members of the band (vocalist/guitarist Israel Rodriguez, bassist Joshua Valdez, and guitarist Andy Sanchez) have 10 years of music experience. Coming from heavier bands in the past, the members collectively decided to take this new project in a more experimental direction.
With all of that being said, we are excited to be premiering the band’s first standalone single, “Roulette,” which can be found at the top of the post. The song has it’s clear metal influences, but also shows Lights Like Autumn branching out for inspiration from acts like PVRIS and Don Broco. Valdez explains that “I believe this project and this song is some of the best work we have created as musicians so far! So much talent in all members and the amazing production and songwriting help from Cory Brunnemann really will push this music far.”
Lights Like Autumn have promised something experimental, not confined to one genre, and “Roulette” is the perfect example of that. Rodriguez’s vocals are of course the highlight of the chorus, but make their presence known all throughout. There are heavy bass lines, perfectly-timed and pitched harmonies, and backing synth melodies that compliment the song and make it as well-rounded as it is.
There are no plans announced as of yet for more music, but you can expect that the band will keep pushing this — and they should. Once again, you can check out Lights Like Autumn’s debut single “Roulette” at the top fo this post, and also you can keep up with them on Facebook and Instagram for further updates.
