The White White Lights portrait

Selected Press:

"The White White Lights create a fractured, appealing, dangerous and spiky sound, full of curves, cliffs and blinding lights. Simply put, they crush...they destroy...and they’re endearing."
- The Deli

"360 degree indie rock mayhem a la Sonic Youth - on the radar with their intricate, layered rock and roll."
- Spin

"Best New Austin Band and Top 10 to Watch in 2010"
- The Austin Chronicle

"The band demonstrates an unusually mature touch, draping Gacy’s haunted growls and methadone croons in lightly realized swirls of guitar or wintry keyboard textures — and just when it seems like floating is all it can do, it breaks into dance-rock showers."
- The Onion

"The shades of white are infinite. I have to emphasize that vocalist Jenny Gacy is really good. Her voice has absolutely perfect intonation."
- KUT 90.5

"Little of this, little of that, little loud, little eerie, little cutesy, little sexy, little angry, little thoughtful, little vicious, little dance-y, little hardcore, and a lot awesome."
- The Austin Chronicle

"The White White Lights deliver fluorescent sounds with bleak hearts found in a dark city. They create emotional and natural synthetic dim and distant noise smothered with impassioned lyrics. The White White Lights feel like a soft kiss before bodies sweat sweet love."
- Bleach Online

"One of the bands that we’re most excited about. The quartet throws down brashly fueled dance-punk riffs while Jenny Gacy feverishly balances furious howls on songs like “Space Invaders” and sultry, delicately intricate pop on tunes like “It’s Cold Here In Japan."
- The Austin Sound


Formed by members of Lomita and Monster Girl, The White White Lights blend the delicate and violent in equal parts, creating vivid and raw songs that both seduce and destroy while also earning them a reputation for tearing down the house during their intense live shows. The haunting vocals and raw, introspective lyrics of Jenny Gacy collide with Deluxe Peroux’s masterful production and intoxicating swirls of guitar build-ups to create half whispered and half screamed walls of sound. The precision and potency provided by the band’s core, Daxter McGarnigle on bass and Davy Hamrick on drums, brings a firm foundation to let the sound expand continuously throughout their sets.
