homage to Sweet Lights aka Shai Halperin’s
hometown, but its bittersweet sentiments should
connect with own anyone’s own sense of local comfort

Traveling Wilburysʼ ‘Handle With Care’.
· Prior to Sweet Lights, Shai Halperin was leader and

on BBC Radio 2 with Bob Harris, a memorable set at
Glastonbury Festival, and high praise from Rolling
Stone and Pitchfork.

and David Hartley spending time in The Capitol Years,
and Shai in turn featuring on guitar alongside Kurt Vile
and Granduciel in an early War On Drugs line-up.
· ‘Endless Town’ / ‘Handle With Care’ is a perfect
introduction to the forthcoming self-titled album, a
spellbinding blend of hook-soaked songwriting.
