"If the radio still mattered, I can assure you that there are at least five radio-ready singles on this record. This band cannot do any wrong." - BERKELEY PLACE
"Fully adept at poppy groovers and cosmically charged heftiness, this band embraces stuff of larger magnitude and intimate introspection with equal vigor, and if the primordial seas get churned up in their wake, so be it, they winningly like things a little rough. Animals In Bloom is a phenomenal debut." - JAMBASE
San Francisco's Big Light will tour this summer in support of their debut album, Animals In Bloom. The dates mark the furthest the band has pushed outside their hometown in a short three year history. And with good reason. Big Light has made a timeless rock and roll record that demands to be heard beyond the Bay Area. The album's 10 tracks spill over with fuzzed-out guitars, artful lyrical observations and stirring garage pop psychedelia. Hailed as one of the most promising young rock bands in San Francisco, Big Light are now setting their sights on the rest of the country.

Forming circa 2007 as a vehicle for aspiring singer/songwriter/guitarist Fred Torphy to get his songs into the world, BIG LIGHT spent the next three years developing their sound and performing around the West Coast relentlessly. Climbing the S.F. club circuit quickly, they went from playing bar gigs like Bottom of the Hill to headlining The Independent to support slots at the legendary Fillmore sharing bills with the likes of Spoon, Broken Social Scene and Dead Confederate among others. A hit on the festival circuit as well, Big Light has previously performed at Outside Lands, Noise Pop and Wanderlust. On this upcoming tour, they're set for another run of summer festivals, including High Sierra, Summer Camp and Bobolink.
With its debut album, Animals In Bloom, Big Light has crafted a record that has enough indie pop charm to land on the radio, but is adventurous enough to engage those who are looking for more than hooks. Headphone junkies and audiophiles themselves, they've created a "listening experience" that never feels fake or dishonest. Experiencing the new album and watching the band evolve at such a rapid rate onstage, one gets the feeling that Big Light is poised to shine bright for years to come.
