Great reviews and lots of airplay!

We are so happy about the many positive reviews on our new album as well as airplay in Australia, UK, US and Europe!

“A wild concept album that captures the best of all the driving folk/rock you ever loved, you have to wonder how these contemporary cats found such hippie vibes in their psyches.” (Midwest Records, 13/5-17)

“All eleven songs are catchy and by turns melancholic, thoughtful or joyously rocking; the set itself is definitely recommended.” (Flying Shoes Review, 24/4-17- by Norman John Darwen (Scotland)

“Ett starkt låtmaterial har genom en snygg och varierad produktion blivit ett album som står sig bra oavsett vad man jämför det med.” (Ergo, 5/5-17, Andreas Jakobsson) ” We are truly impressed with the way they have captured the essence of a true American musical genre, and made it their own.” (La Music Critic, 5/5-17)

“With “Silence In The City,” Linda and Mats of Lighthouse Sweden know that life is a journey and not a sprint. Their clever, heartfelt, and unique looks at love from both sides make this set the perfect soundtrack for lovers everywhere!” (Donald & Sheryl’s Blues Blog, 15/5-17)

Review from the No 1 vinyl collectors magazine in the world…

REVIEW: GOLDMINE MAGAZINE 

Published: 2014

Author: Bruce Sylvester

LIGHTHOUSE Moody Maracas (CD)*****

A Swedish duo, Lighthouse has plenty of Scandinavian angst, while the mood, accents and sound are solid Americana with elements of ’70s rock. Take the strong opener, “Passing Me By” on a crumbling relationship. It could almost step off Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours” as golden soprano Linda Brandemark trades lines back and forth with gritty-toned Mats Brandemark
They’ve got a knack for hooks. Take the fusion of optimism and sad wisdom of “The darkness hides behind the sun. It’s up to you,” that could well fit Marianne Faithfull. The finale, “Memories,” shows that (like big Mac did on side 1 of the “Rumours” LP) they know how to ease a collection down to its close. And when a single line on “As Good as It Gets” goes from Barcelona to New Hampshire, we realize how global rock has become.

Back from Tour!

We had so much fun visiting the South of Sweden and the North of Germany. Thanks to all of you that came out to see us, and hope to see you again!

Lighthouse on tour

We are happy to announce that we are going on a mini tour in the end of April! Starting in Southern Sweden and ending at the Blues Garage in Hannover, pretty sweet!

Summing up 2014 – what a year!!

We are so overwhelmed by the year 2014. We released our debut album in April, and by November we had great reviews from all over, as well as all eleven songs played on the radio somewhere in the World. Rootsy Magazine critic Magnus Eriksson listed Lighthouse as one of the best albums of 2014. Thanks!!
