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.
