No Lights are a four-piece post-punk band based out of San Francisco. Formed in late 2018 and comprised of ex/current members of Bay Area metal bands Kowloon Walled City and Early Graves, their sound offers a rowdier take on garage rock.
Taking dissonant guitar flourishes and nailing them to a pop song structure, No Lights writes love songs for the unloved. With lyrics that read more like dismembered Bukowski poems rather than traditional punk lyrics, there’s a dark message seeping from the melody. No Lights credits bands such as The Wipers, The Stooges, and The Pixies as influencing their sound.
