The lead single from the forthcoming Sweet Lights self-titled debut, “Endless Town” pays homage to Shai’s Halperin’s hometown of Philadelphia. While laced with a few expected bittersweet memories, the city’s longstanding collaborations and mutual creative admirations weave their way into song, giving it a spellbinding effect. The B side is a spellbinding cover of Handle With Care by the Traveling Wilburys.
The beautiful limited edition of 500 transparent clear 7″ vinyl is available now online. You can buy yourself a copy of it from Rough Trade, Rise, Piccadilly Records, Norman Records, Reflex, the Highline Store or your local record retailer. Should you be of the digital persuasion, itunes will surely sort you out, as will Amazon and emusic.
