Light House Bio
Hmm, I couldn't find much of a bio on this group:{ Here's what Dark Entries had to say;
So we’ve found another great new band from Portland. *Shocker*. Light House is a trio comprised of Chris Relyea, Dawn Sharp, and Brooks Blackhawk, and their blend of Shoegaze Atmospherics and Dark Synth sounds is right up our alley. The band’s latest release, In Their Image EP, comes to us via Freee, a new project from the fine folks from Ecstasy consisting of, in their own words, music, literature and whatever else they feel like putting out.

Hello, how are you?
 LH didn't answer this one, we'll assume they're doing great;]

What are you currently listening to?

Is there a story behind the band name? 
It was just a marriage of words we both agreed upon. I've always visualized it as a light box house.

Care to tell us a little bit about your latest release 'In Their Image'; theme(s), favorite track(s), etc.?
The 'In Their Image EP' was recorded on analog tape at Red Lantern Studios in Portland.  At the time of recording it was just intended to feature some new material with Brooks on guitar for online stuff (Brooks is a studio member of Light House). I definitely feel like something happens if you listen to the title song in the dark but we think the songs in general round out the intentions of the band pretty well. Freee asked to put the four songs out as an EP and Light House is distributing the first pressing.  We just signed with Mannequin to repress and distribute it in Europe as well, which we're really excited about!

Will you be touring pretty extensively for said release?
We're definitely shaping tours right now.  We just played in LA on 3/20 with Hive Mind (and San Francisco again in May).  Then we're gonna do the whole West Coast, New York and small European tour in June.

How did you get connected with Mannequin Records?
Well essentially it was just through word of mouth and goes back to Patricia from Soft Metals and Justin from Soft Moon.  Ohh sofft..

Got any other projects we should know about?
Chris was a member of The Rapture, The Calculators and has a solo project called Switches.  I have a clothing line.

What movie would work best on mute while listening to you music?

You can only keep/listen to ONE album for the rest of your life ..which album would it be?
Dawn: Tim Hardin's '1'

Are you living your dream?
Dawn: Probably, I'm reading 'Dreambody' right now..
Chris: Always

Thanx Dawn and Chris (and Honey too)!

Light House recently released 'In Their Image EP', I recommend you get that yesterday...
