All Music Guide:

Husband-and-wife duo Peaking Lights combine elements of dub, Krautrock, and psychedelic pop in their unique brand of lo-fi music. Indra Dunis (of Dynasty and Numbers) and Aaron Coyes were bandmates in the Bay Area band Rahdunes before forming a home-recording project using a drum machine, a Hammond organ, a guitar, and thick bass grooves. Two years after releasing their debut, Imaginary Falcons, the follow-up album, 936, was released on noise-heavy label Not Not Fun to glowing reviews and a widening fan base. The group's momentum led them to signing with Domino Records subsidiary label Weird World, who re-released a deluxe edition of 936 in November of 2011. 2012 saw the release of the duo's third album, Lucifer, a more professionally recorded album which expanded their sound and included guest vocalizations from their very newborn son Mikko. They stripped even more of the lo-fi sheen from their next offering, 2014's more clearly recorded and beat-minded full-length Cosmic Logic.

Indra Dunis and Aaron Coyes, the married duo behind Peaking Lights, say they plan to get "2011 tattoos." 2011 was the year they moved from Wisconsin, where she grew up, back to California, where he did, and where, up the coast in the San Francisco Bay Area, the two originally met. It's also the year Dunis and Coyes released Peaking Lights' breakout album, 936, welcomed their son, Mikko, into the world, and started recording their… more »
