An alternative pop/rock trio with a lush, bombastic sound, the Daylights
formed in 2004 in Los Angeles, CA. Brothers Ricky
(bass/guitar) and Ran Jackson
(guitar/keyboard) provided the group's foundation, while Danish drummer Svend Lerche joined the lineup several months later to replace the departing Adam Farley (with whom the band released its first recording, The Shift and Blur EP
). With Lerche on board, the Daylights
landed a high-profile touring gig with OneRepublic
and released another EP, 2008's Sans Radio
, while readying the release of the band's debut album.
