Campus Connections: New Light Asylum

21 Feb

Possibly one of the most intriguing bands to me, Light Asylum, are set to drop their self-titled album in the springtime. And they treated us to a little gift by leaking two songs off said album. Those tracks being “Shallow Tears” and “Genesis”.

“Light Asylum” is exactly what I love about this band, it starts with a very 80’s synth line, followed by a very very 80’s electronic drum beat. As you can tell, the entire song is super 80’s and it’s awesome. Oh, and Shannon Funchess’ vocals are unique as always.

“Genesis” is a mostly instrumental track that moves away fr0m the 80’s aspect and just stays on the electric side of things. The change of pace and style is actually welcomed.

Anyways, check it out.
