SLIGHTS came together when Ben Parks and Matthew Dunehoo met during a workshop teaching you how to not die in an effort to make art almost 24-7. Matthew really admired Ben’s beautiful large-scale paintings and Ben admired the fact that Matthew wasn’t too embarrassed to complain about trivial matters. These men are both grunge babies though Parks’ previous/current other projects skew towards the dark-folk/americana side of musicdom (of Tree), Dunehoo’s projects like Baby Teardrops and Doris Henson have always been patently derivative of NIRVANA. Feeling that there’s mere hours for humanity left before evacuating to Mars, SLIGHTS aims to transmute two lives’ collections of insults into golden fuzzy indulgent large psychosis drive-time rock, while others choose to serve selflessly and educate the young.
