On The Couch: The Dears

by Dane Walters 19 Aug 2020 1:34 PM

Watch Murray Lightburn of The Dears preform his song “Missiles” for our On The Couch series.

Usually, KXT and Art&Seek record musicians outdoors and in unusual spaces for our “On The Road” series. But times are different now.  Introducing “On The Road Couch.” Get an inside look at some of your favorite KXT artists’ homes as they perform from the comfort of their own couch.

We reached out to Murray Lightburn, founder of the Montreal indie outfit The Dears, to play a song for NPR Music’s Songs for Change as a part of our On The Couch series. He offers up this quietly compelling performance of the band’s 2008 track, “Missiles.”
