Liverpool Sound City 2012: Sweet Lights: Leaf Cafe, Liverpool


Sweet Lights live at Liverpool Sound City.jpg
The sun goes down on LIverpool Sound City 2012 – but Getintothis’ Alan O’Hare finds something to bring sweet, sweet light into a late night at Leaf Cafe.

It’s Liverpool Sound City day three and we’re dazed and confused.
Not working for Dazed & Confused. Though that would be handy as Sweet Lights take over Leaf (venue of the festival for me).
We’re tired, people are eating cake… but then Shai Halperin‘s ethereal voice flys from the PA stack.

Take a pinch of Eels, a dash of Brian Wilson and add a spoonful of Belle & Sebastian. What ya got?
Beautiful mini symphonies that float around Bold Street’s most tranquil spot. ‘I do not care for the summer sun,’ he sings on the epic You Let Me Down.
Liar. Melodies this drip-drop gorgeous are only made in California. There are a million, left of centre singer/songwriters out there right now.
We only wish a crumb of them were this good…
