Submarine Lights Are

At the core of Submarine Lights are singer-songwriters Stephen & Meredith Duncan, along with Chemistry Set and Polyphonic Spree alumns Cory Helms (guitars, bass) and Josh Hoover (drums). Joining them in their interstate sonic experiment were producer McKenzie Smith (Midlake, Father John Misty), violinist Daniel Hart (St. Vincent), and cellist Buffi Jacobs (Polyphonic Spree).
Submarine Lights began as an experiment in long-distance collaboration between Stephen, Cory, Josh and Meredith located in Texas, Washington, DC, and New York City. The debut album by the band, The Dangerous Pleasures of Uncommon Curiosity, layers soaring harmonies, subtle beats, liquid guitars, memorable melodies and lyrics into a collection of character-driven songs ranging from hopeful, hopeless, whimsical and creepy.

“More symphonic than St. Vincent and less bombastic than The Polyphonic Spree. It’s not quite twee, but fans of The Magnetic Fields and Belle & Sebastian will be happy.” — “If It’s Too Loud”

“Submarine Lights are like a cross between Brian Wilson and Polyphonic Spree, but with better songs.”— Paul Seff, Evil Teen Records
