Dear and the Headlights
are a 5-piece from Phoenix, Arizona with a rich guitar-pop characterized by a bluesy backbone and powerful vocals. Lead singer Ian Metzger's clear voice, tinged with desperation, was at risk of bordering on whiny emotry in the band's first album, but on their sophomore release Drunk Like Bible Times
the stronger songwriting easily holds it. "Talk About" is an intense and catchy tune with perfectly crafted, bitter lyrics. Listen below. -selden paterson
