Floodlights – presented by Jet Black Cat Music

Floodlights make honest, catchy rock music that melds ‘80s alternative rock with ‘90s New Zealand jangle-pop. Formed in mid 2018 in Melbourne, the band consists of guitarists/vocalists Louis Parsons and Ashlee Kehoe, bassist Joe Draffen and drummer Archie Shannon. Their live performance is intimate at times, intertwined with large powerful outbursts. They self released their debut EP ‘Backyard’ in 2019 on 10” vinyl, containing the single ‘Nullarbor’ which gained them an abundance of attention globally. With a reissue of the EP from Spunk Records in late 2019, the band gained more attention, coinciding with an east coast tour of Australia, where the band also showcased what was to come from their debut LP ‘From a View’ which was later released via Spunk Records and Woo Me! Records in July 2020. In 2021, Floodlights teamed up with Tiny Town Records to release a two song 7” which showcases the dynamic range of genres and moods that they cover as a band.
