Biography

SuckerForLights is a Dreampop duo from Portland, Oregon. The band was started in 2008 by vocalist Olivia Voss and guitarist Bryan Brunt. Their self-titled 5-track EP, released March 2011, was produced by Jeremy Sherrer (The Dandy Warhols, Hockey) at the Odditorium, Spooky Electric studios, and the Family Farm. While listening to SuckerForLights’ EP, you’ll enjoy Olivia’s fluid modal to falsetto vocal sweeps and the understated elegance of Bryan’s guitar hooks. The band’s sound has been referenced to the Dreampop, New Wave, Shoegaze and Indie Pop genres. Reviews have compared them to Cocteau Twins, The Smiths and Kate Bush.

SuckerForLights has shared the stage with acts such as The Jealous Sound and Letting Up Despite Great Faults. In 2012 the band will release a digital single followed by their debut LP.


Press:


” SuckerForLights is ready for its close-up. The Portland duo, which formed in 2007 but apparently hadn’t released any material before last March’s self-titled EP, plays catchy, New Wave-ish pop that would probably sound more natural on 94.7 FM than it will on stage at Rotture tonight. Joined by guitarist Bryan Brunt and guest bassist, singer and synth player Olivia Voss’ bright-and-shiny synth hooks and almost diva-esque vocals should, however, serve as a complementary appetizer to headliner Sundaze’s also ’80s-influenced shoegazing.”
- Willamette Week

“First to play was SuckerForLights. SFL is an indie pop band that is made up of vocalist and synth player Olivia Voss and Bryan Brunt. Voss gave the audience heartfelt lyrics and verbrato that would inspire any music enthusiasts. Brunt played guitar, offering solos and guitar hooks that were something more interactive and physical than similar pop music.
