I Am Lightyear plays Mercury tonight 05.25

The project of chanteuse/pianist Lauren Zettler, I Am Lightyear offers imaginative and textured electro-pop, dominated by the singer's intimate lirycs and delicate delivery. Make no mistake though, these are big, open pop songs for a NYC based artist - the word "pop" has assumed a rather dark meaning in the last few years in Brooklyn - enriched by an open minded and tasteful approach to sonic experimentation. It looks like I Am Light year will be our next artist of the Month, so you may want to go see them at Mercury lounge tonight April 25th - they'll be opening for Lissy Trullie.
