The Half Light are a four piece indie band from London who are returning to the scene in 2018 with new material and a new line up. ‘8th May’ is the first track from their forthcoming EP, Night On My Mind, and will be released on 5th March.

Since forming in 2011, the band have self-released three records, Friday Night EP (2011), Clapham EP (2012) and Moscow (2015), which will be followed by Night On My Mind EP later this year. Their music has featured on radio stations across the country, including BBC 6 Music, BBC London and Amazing Radio and the band were nominated for Best UK Act at the 2015 Pure M Awards.

Following these earlier releases, vocalist James and guitarist Guy were joined by a refreshed rhythm section, Mike and Martin, to complete the line up and the band entered the studio in late 2017.

Influenced by the best of indie rock across the decades, the band has drawn parallels with The Smiths, Interpol and REM. Their latest record combines their trademark punchy pop melodies with rich layers of rhythm, synth and guitars.

The Half Light will play The Water Rats, London on Saturday 10th March to mark the launch of 8th May. A series of further gigs and festival appearances will be announced on the band’s website in the coming weeks (www.thehalflight.com).
