Southtowne Lanes is a four piece emo band from the Pacific Northwest.
“Its a song about anxiety and self-fulfilling prophecy,” says vocalist Matt Kupka of ‘Deadlights’, and how it fits in within the context of the album. “The song happens towards the end of the record, and deals with the concept of the narrator becoming wrapped up in their own accusations. Throughout the record, the narrator references and sees these “ghosts” of their past, and at this point they start realising that they may have just exemplified the projections they thought they were seeing. The narrator stops seeing the ghosts as a separate world, and starts realising that the line between present and past may have been blurred.”
