Attic Lights are a Scottish indie rock band from Glasgow, Scotland, formed in 2005 by Kev Sherry (vocals, guitar), Colin McArdle (vocals, bass), Jamie Houston (guitar, keyboard, vocals) and Noel O’Donnell (drums, vocals). The four-part harmonies in a number of their songs have led to critical comparisons with Teenage Fanclub and The Beach Boys. Their guitar heavy powerpop has also been compared to alternative rock bands such as Weezer, R.E.M. and The Lemonheads. A series of independent releases and live performances, including a well-received appearance at the 2007 T in the Park festival led to a bidding war between major labels. The band signed with Island Records and released their debut album, Friday Night Lights, in October 2008. In 2013 Attic Lights signed with Elefant Records and released their second album, Super De Lux. The band has been remixed by Mogwai, Camera Obscura and Jim Noir. They have been interviewed on the BBC’s The Culture Show and re-recorded the theme tune for Channel 5’s re-working of the classic television series Minder. In 2013 Attic Lights opened the main stage at the Benicassim Music Festival and followed this up in September headlining the Lemon Pop festival in Alicante, Spain. In 2015 Attic Lights released a new single in conjunction with Spanish indie pop act La Casa Azul. The band are currently working on their third album.
