The American duo's next album is due in June on the Domino sub-label Weird World.
Peaking Lights is Aaron Doyes and Indra Dunis, a married couple who played together in a Bay Area band called Rahdunes before forming their own project. Their records are a hazy blend of indie, kosmische and left-field dance music, a sound that made them an easy fit on the LA labels Not Not Fun and 100% Silk, who released their last album, 936, in both its original and remixed form. Lucifer was recorded over the course of a month at Gary's Electric studio in Brooklyn. According to a press release, it was inspired by the birth of Doyes and Dunis' son, Mikko, as well as more fantastical themes.
"All of our record titles have come to us in dreams, daydreams and epiphanies," Coyes explains. "Lucifer sat so strong with us. It means 'Venus, bearer of light' and is the first sign of the sunrise. There are some major astrological and astronomical events involving Venus in this year of 2012."
To support the album, Peaking Lights have started a new series of mixtapes to be posted on http://www.lucifer.fm/. The first is already up, and offers a glimpse into the duo's obscure and psychedelic set of influences, plus a bit of material from the new album.
