“There’s loneliness at the core of “Dinosaur Bones,” but the song rises triumphantly with an anthemic middle section that leaves a feeling of fragile peace, not abandonment. It’s a promising debut from the band, who have wowed audiences throughout the South.” – Garden and Gun

Charleston, South Carolina’s Stop Light Observations is the revolutionary four-member band whose rapidly increasing fan base has found them breaking the record for most consecutive sellouts at The Music Farm and landing coveted slots at Bonnaroo and Firefly Music Festival. SLO's most recent LP, Toogoodoo, saw coverage at major national outlets from PBS and Conan O’Brien’s Fresh Noise to Impose, PopMatters and Garden & Gun, the latter praising Toogoodoo as "a promising debut from the band, who have wowed audiences throughout the South.”
Now, following the successful release of Toogoodoo, and an ambitious year on the road in support, Stop Light Observations are poised to tackle their next major endeavor—an ongoing series of digital 45s, each with an A-side and B-side, entitled The Volume, which will disperse the band’s hard-hitting yet melodic songs in a more immediate fashion. At the center of the first volume is Stop Light Observations' new single, "Coyote." It’s a stunning, slow-building piano ballad that evolves strikingly through distinct dynamic phases, vocalist Will Blackburn's effortlessly toggling between a delicate croon and an anthemic howl. With "Coyote," the group distills its already potent arena-ready indie rock all the way through the song's powerful crescendo of an outro. Stop Light Observations may be blazing their own trails, but they want everyone to join them on their journey—fans, friends and family, past and present. "The Volume releases will ultimately be defined as a series—a voice for the voiceless. A podium for those who have yearned for the opportunity to share their own stories of struggle, passion, and love," vocalist Will Blackburn explains.

William Blackburn (lead vocals)
John Keith "Cubby" Culbreth (synth, piano)
