light asylum

shallow tears


limited 12"

Released: 27th Feb 2012


brooklyn synth-goth duo light asylum storm the dark castle with an early morning, arm-in-arm dance floor psalm.

a co-production with chris coady (beach house, gang gang dance, grizzly bear), the mournful, surging diamond synths ride thunderous drum machines, culminating in the absolute passion of the vocal delivery eliciting some undeniably inspired distorted keyboard lines which drive the high drama to the skies. the b-side ‘genesis’, is mostly instrumental melancholic techno pop in line with chris & cosey’s output, accented by ambient delay tactics & ghostly vocal choruses.
