SPOTLIGHTS
Spotlights is the Brooklyn-based married couple of Mario and Sarah Quintero.
In Spotlights, the Quinteros summon a supreme sound, equally heavy and dreamy. A tar-pit sludge-rock foundation is blanketed by layers of shimmering shoegaze. Their debut full length TIDALS was released on Crowquill Records in the spring of 2016 as a follow up to the synth laden, doom-pop EP, Demonstration. Tidals' songs rock hard and memorably, bringing to mind hints of bands, from Failure to My Bloody Valentine to Godflesh to Smashing Pumpkins and beyond.
Spotlights was handpicked by Deftones to support the band on three weeks of its summer U.S. tour in August of 2016. Select dates included support from 90’s post-hardcore, greats, Refused. They quickly followed up with a second national run in September with If These Trees Could Talk.
In December 2016 they self released the 3 song “odds and ends” EP, SPIDERS, featuring a cover of the song She Spider by MEW, and a remix of Joseph, the closing track on TIDALS, done by Aaron Harris (Isis/Palms). The Spiders EP served as the perfect way to hold fans over while the band continued work on their new record.

When it came time to record the the follow up full length to TIDALS, the Quinteros didn’t have to look far to find the perfect producer. “Choosing to work with Aaron [Harris] on our new record was a no brainer for us. We get along great and he completely understands where we are coming from musically and knows just how to capture that.” says Mario. Sarah adds “Plus, he’s an incredible drummer and we tricked him into playing on four of the songs!”. The three of them spent a week in Los Angeles at Palmquist Studios, putting together one of the most dynamic, and emotive collection of songs to date.

Biography
Sorxe was formed in Phoenix AZ in the Summer of 2012. Including Shane Ocell (Via Vengence , Hillbilly Devilspeak) and Tanner Crace (ex Magnetplan, N17, Tintype) Christopher Coons - (ex Tintype, Daughters of Fission) and Roger Williams (Dead Canyon , ex Graves at Sea)

The band name comes from the idea of music creation and energy coming from a place inside us that is very sacred and when channeled can be a religious experience, whether its creating music , art , life , memories, experiences whatever the case may be ….everything is reflective of this. This is the source of our passion, and we will ride with the currents and latch onto the pure stream of creating something from nothing, as if it was always there.
