Soundcheck Never Sounded So Good

The band Headlights hails from Champaign, Illinois, but we met them at Brooklyn's Union Hall. We were first attracted to their boy-girl harmonies and full sound. The press notes namecheck Phil Spector and his 60s doo-wop groups, and we hear some classic mid-90s indie rock bands in their sound as well - but were happy to discover that they're five of the nicest people we could have hoped to meet. The music's pretty great, too. Check out their performance of "School Boys" from their album Some Racing, Some Stopping.
