PEAKING LIGHTS – Everytime I See the Light

LA psychedelic dub-pop duo Peaking Lights will return this summer with the new double LP The Fifth State Of Consciousness. No one could describe what to expect from the forthcoming album better than the artists themselves:

“A journey thru an alien landscape where the dream world tells stories of lost innocence, finding strength and seeking an enlightened state of being after trials and tribulations all wrapped up in two syrupy dubbed to the bone balearic pancakes sprinkled with powdered psychedelia.” — Peaking Lights

Listen to the first single “Everytime I See the Light”.

The Fifth State Of Consciousness is out June 16 on Two Flowers Records.
