“On Mountains Are Forever, another late Love & Decay track, starts at warp speed before slowing down to a more meditative pace,” said Kerrang in their recent Q&A with the band ( The song captures the album’s mood in miniature; distress giving way to calm acceptance. For the track’s music video, this change is speed is matched by a series of images meant to signify the passing of time.”

Consequence of Sound said the eight-song album combines “elements of post-rock, shoegazing, and sludge metal into a unique amalgam of sound that is both heavy and heavenly.” New Noise dubbed the record “essential” and Invisible Oranges said the release “is a kind of sonic parallel to Deftones, who often deal with the same flickering unnameable emotionality within their mixture of dream pop, shoegaze, and heavy music.” Love & Decay is available now via

Spotlights is Mario Quintero (guitar/vocals/programming), Sarah Quintero (bass/vocals) and Chris Enriquez (drums). Mario handled the production work on the eight-track offering. The band’s Ipecac debut, Seismic, arrived in the Fall of 2017. Ghettoblaster said of the album: “They avoid many of the common pitfalls associated with some shoegaze or sludge artists in that the album never feels like it drags. Sometimes doomy, sometimes romantic, it’s as heavy as it is beautiful.” Revolver said Spotlights “balance delicate atmospherics” and “crushing sounds,” while Treble Zine expanded on that sentiment, saying: “… the Quinteros make some truly huge-sounding music, much of it crushing. There’s an ethereality and grace about it, however, which makes the ambitious expanse of Seismicconsistently interesting throughout its hour-plus runtime.” During the subsequent tours, Spotlights recorded an Audiotree session, which can be viewed here: The band released an EP, Hanging By Faith (, in June 2018
