Cliffie Swan

Cliffie Swan, formerly known as Lights, are a band that requires little explanation. Sophia Knapp and her bandmates chant airy, melodic vocals with musical precision atop a raft of shiny guitar progressions and a sometimes funky backbeat. No autotune required with these sparkling singers.

About the author

Abandoned by his family as an infant, Jonathan was left on a doorstep in Romania and raised by other orphans on a steady diet of moldy bread and aurolac. He found his way to the states in the mid-80s and founded several underground publications such as Sports Illustrated and People magazine at the age of 11. Jonathan now lives in Austin with a bunch of other hip, white people.
