Earthquake Lights

Four-piece rock band from NYC, Earthquake Lights, met during their time at college. They quickly achieved success with their very first EP, earning placements in a national NBA/Tissot ad campaign and an Alex Gibney documentary, receiving critical acclaim alongside multiple Spotify editorial playlists, a placement in Isabel Sandoval’s award-winning film Lingua Franca, and a feature on Vulfpeck’s album The Joy of Music, The Job of Real Estate.

Earthquake Lights have garnered millions of streams for their music to date and have charted on iTunes four separate times in the Top 40 and Top 20 in good company with artists and bands like John Mayer and The Killers.


New single, Silhouette, is about the search for life, penning the question, “What’s the connection between music and space?” From the dawn of time, humans have been very curious, always searching and yearning to discover. Whether it’s within the universe, new species, new planets, new stars, or simply within ourselves which is its own universe.

The search for life can be within yourself, within your own world but it would also be within outer space. It can be feeling like you’re always by yourself, but you find out along the way that you’re not traveling alone. EQL is always learning to make music that can be specific to every person’s lens. It is not very literal to how exactly you should interpret this song, it can be seen differently through everyone’s own lens.

We hope that people who might feel like they’re being lonely or searching for something out there can find solace in this.

Andy leaned into the “what if there was life elsewhere in the universe?” question and ultimately we felt it was interesting as just a question alone, without an answer. You could be alone or you could be surrounded by others.

-Lead singer of Earthquake Lights, Myles Rodenhouse

Built around the desire to add more irregularity into their sound, “Silhouette” features a 5/4 time signature, reminiscent of the chromatic lines of Serge Gainsbourg, as well as the bombast and showmanship of early David Bowie. For the lyrics, the band reached out to their friend and poet Andy Axel. He was drawn to a story in the New York Times that described “luminous fast blue optical transients” and “silhouettes” in space, which he felt was a great fit for the sound of the music, and which also connected with their aspirations to pay homage to old Bowie records.

Despite the lyrics touching on loneliness, sonically the track emits a mood of excitement for something new.
