You know we love a good jangle! From a View is the debut album from Melbourne’s Floodlights and it's got some killer shimmer.

+ Available on limited indie shop ochre yellow vinyl.

From a View explores themes of identity, personal cross-roads and the misuse
of power. The bands first exploration into proper studio recording with a well
regarded sound engineer. It was recorded over two days onto a 24 track
tape machine at Head Gap studios in Preston in November.

Nao Anzai (Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever) engineered the album and
then mixed it over the infamous Australian summer. Mikey Young (Total
Control/Eddie Current) recently added the final touch with mastering.

Floodlights are made up of members Louis Parsons, Ashlee Kehoe, Joe
Draffen and Archie Shannon. They present a distinctly Australian
perspective, with a shambolic, catchy sound that melds 80s Indie-Rock
rock with 90s New Zealand jangle-pop.

Following a tour of Australia’s East Coast in October last year the band began working on “From a View”. The songs were arranged and performed as a band, but often began from Louis or Ash presenting ideas to the group and building on them from there. The songs themselves were written over various points in the bands short career, yet come together very fittingly to show their distinct sound.
