The fact that Rabbit Punch is on the bill probably has something to do with it ;]

TEALIGHTS is a classically-infused electronica pop band founded in June 2008 by members Mikey Johnson, Nancy Shim, and Mary Knight. Though the project itself may be fairly new, the three are no strange faces in Atlanta. They are more familiarly recognized as former members of One Hand Loves the Other, Creative Loafing's choice as Atlanta's Best Pop Act of 2007.
Nancy Shim (instrumental composer/pianist/flautist) was introduced to Mikey Johnson, electronics whiz behind Music for People (Stickfigure) in Oct '06. Having been classically-trained to compose using modern notation, Shim became intrigued with Johnson's ability to write using graphic notation, and vice versa. The two became a dynamic duo in creating the final music sound for One Hand Loves the Other, and their debut was nationally released in June '07. The self-titled debut was chosen as one of Atlanta's Best Albums of 2007 and garnered much press that year. When OHLTO's cellist left to pursue a business opportunity that month, the talented Mary Knight came into OHLTO's hands to mark her position as the permanent cellist.
By April 2008, the four-piece began struggling with high tension at a constant peak. Johnson, Shim, and Knight eventually left OHLTO in May to pursue a fresh and more dynamic alternative. This new project earned the name tealights, and in June, the band found itself writing what would be its new sound using an assortment of vox harmonies, electronic beats, live drums, synths, keyboard, guitar, bass, cello, flute, and bells. Knight, an experienced rock singer-songwriter, impressed the band with her delivery. In no time, her fluttery, luminous brand of vocals would blend with the more delicate yet enticingly droning tone of Shim's, creating the perfect balance for tealights. To accentuate the brilliance of Johnson's electronic style, drummer Brett Kelly was later added, ascending the band to another exhilarating dimension.
In September, tealights debuted its new sound in Atlanta and have since graced the stage as opening acts for several talented bands. They plan to release their first EP in 2009.
