Straylight Run - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (763 words)
Straylight Run is an emo/indie band based in Baldwin, Nassau County, New York, NY (Long Island) and is currently unsigned, having ended their contractual obligations to Chicago-based Victory Records with the release of the Prepare To Be Wrong EP.
Straylight Run was formed in May 2003 and consists of John Nolan, Michelle Nolan (John's sister), Shaun Cooper and Will Noon (of Breaking Pangaea).
The CD ended their contract with Victory Records although there are still plans for a live album to be released on the label.
Straylight Run - Biography - AOL Music (411 words)
Regrouping together under the name Straylight Run, the two completed the band by recruiting Nolan's sister Michelle (vocals/keyboards) and ex-Breaking Pangea drummer Will Noon.
Forming in May 2003, Straylight Run turned its back on the aggressive, two-vocalist attack of Taking Back Sunday -- a formula many young bands were in turn adopting and expanding upon -- and opted for a more indie rock approach with pensive, dreamy, and often piano-driven tunes.
Straylight Run next combined their acoustic stirrings with more socially aware lyrics on October 2005's Prepare to Be Wrong EP; in addition to songs addressing the war in Iraq, the release also included a particularly revealing song ("A Slow Descent") about the Taking Back Sunday separation.
