‘We Are Taking The Streets Back!’ – Introducing Light Asylum
To kick start your weekend our good friends at Co-Operative Music have unleashed the third track from Light Asylum’s eponymous debut album (due May 1) – check out ‘IPC’…
If you’ve already had a taste of their In Tension EP you’ll know what to expect – propulsive synths, deep, crusty drum machines and Shannon Funchess’ unmistakable vocal delivery. What we really like is how they’ve subverted their previous lo-fi haze and placed Funchess right up front in the mix, maybe they’ve been taking notes from a certain LCD member?
Our favourite moment of ‘IPC’ comes in at the 2.45 mark, a priceless combo of a whip sample and Funchess snapping ‘God Damn!’, pretty much sums up everything we love about this New York duo.
Grab the track below for the measly price of an email address, and whilst you’re at it check out Zola Jesus’ guest spot on Orbital’s triumphant return ‘New France’ – Sit tight for our in-depth interview with Zola in the coming weeks!
Light Asylum will be performing along with Zola Jesus and Forces on 31 May at the FBi Radio/Penny Drop Party at Vivid LIVE.
