The debut album by Submarine Lights began as an experiment in long-distance relationships, with songs written and recorded in New York City, Texas, and Washington, DC. Bringing together members of St. Vincent, The Chemistry Set, Polyphonic Spree, and Calhoun, with producer McKenzie Smith, New York natives Stephen and Meredith Duncan layer soaring harmonies, subtle beats, liquid guitars, silvery strings, and memorable melodies into a collection of intimate and sometimes creepy moments.
At the core of Submarine Lights are singer-songwriters Stephen & Meredith Duncan, along with Chemistry Set and Polyphonic Spree alumns Cory Helms (guitars, bass) and Josh Hoover (drums). Joining them in their interstate sonic experiment were producer McKenzie Smith (Midlake, Father John Misty), violinist Daniel Hart (St. Vincent), and cellist Buffi Jacobs (Polyphonic Spree).
