Hailing from Copenhagen, Denmark Black Light White Light are bohemian neo-psychedelic rock with a sultry Scandinavian pop twist.
Songs are packed with melodies and twisted hooklines drowned in a dirty wash of reverb and tremolo.
In late 2015 the band went into the studio recording new material.
The recording sessions for Black Light White Light’s sophomore album 'Gold Into Dreams' took place in May 2013 with the Grammy-nominated US producer Chris “Frenchie” Smith (The Dandy Warhols, Ringo Deathstarr, Jet, Smog, …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead) covering producing and mixing duties.
The album is mastered at The Lodge, NYC by Grammy-wining chief engineer Emily Lazar (Foo Fighters, David Bowie, The Raveonettes, Vampire Weekend).
'Gold Into Dreams' was released October 14th 2014 via Danish imprint Target Records. First single from the album 'High Like A Hurricane' was released June 2014 followed by double single Operators/Running.
In conjunction with the album the band even released it's personally designed guitar fuzz pedal 'Gold Digger' with the album inside for download made with Swedish designers M&E and UK pedal maker Looperstar.
On September 26th 2011 Black Light White Light released the debut album 'Infrared Daylight' on its own inprint Record Records, recorded in North Hollywood, CA with producer Rick Parker (B.R.M.C, The Dandy Warhols, The Von Bondies, Miranda Lee Richards etc.).
The album was mastered at Elysian Masters in Los Angeles, CA by Dave Cooley (The Black Angels, Darker My Love, Serge Gainsbourg, Local Natives, Dangermouse etc).
Only a few years old the band already gained substantially notice in North America. In mid June 2011 Black Light White Light showcased at the great NXNE Music Festival in Toronto, Canada. And the band was as well invited to SXSW 2011. In September 2011 just prior to the album release Black Light White Light did a mini promotion tour UK.
In October 2011 Black Light White Light headed on the band's first US tour bringing the band from Charlotte, North Carolina to Los Angeles, California supporting the debut album.
In the past years, Black Light White Light have toured UK, Italy and played around Scandinavia consistently, sharing the bill with internationally acclaimed bands like Crocodiles (US), The Telescopes (UK), Crystal Antlers (US) and The Soundtrack Of Our Lives (S).
