For over a decade, Luis Rodriquez has been writing songs and playing guitar for the shoegaze band Resplandor. During this time he has played with Robin Guthrie, The Radio Dept, Airiel, The Ocean Blue, Mark Gardener (Ride), Mahogany, Elika, House Of Love, Altocamet, The Jesus And Mary Chain, Asobi Seksu and many more. Luis brings all of this experience to the forefront, along with the majestic and enigmatic vocals of Aracelli Fernandez, in The Spiracles.

This first EP includes the beautiful indie-pop single "Fireflies", followed by a mid-tempo "Mercy" and a lovely version of The Field Mice's "End Of The Affair". It also includes a remix by the shoegaze/electronica Brooklyn based band Elika and another by Canu, lead singer/DJ from the Argentina band Altocamet.

The Spiracles have taken great influence from bands such as REM, The Smiths, Robin Guthrie, The Field Mice, Trembling Blue Stars and it is evident in this recording. Upon initial listen, you will find yourself singing along with the sure to be college radio hit "Fireflies" long after the song has ended.
