With three songs to their name and only a couple of performances behind them, The Rebel Light is a LA-based sibling trio in its infancy, drifting from one influence to the next with soulful energy, and an innocence that stretches right to the edge of kitschy. See below the homemade slideshow that illustrates their first song, 'Goodbye Serenade'; celebrating every milestone of the 20th century onwards, from the first man on the moon to the birth of Facebook, it could just about be a true cynic's worst nightmare if it weren't for the momentum of the soundtrack.
Featuring a nostalgic waltz with piano, xylophone and trumpet, some pompous folk-rock and electronic-infused indie rock, their first EP (to be released by the end of summer) will be quite the eclectic little set. As we speak, the band is getting back from NYC, where they appeared on the Catalpa weekender's bill alongside the likes of Snoop & The Black Keys- not bad for a second show, right? For another chance to say “I saw them as they were just starting” (who doesn't love that?) catch their next appearance at LA's Street Food Cinema on August 11th – Tracy Mamoun
