“oh and we’re here again,
let this moment be another.
right now peripherals aren’t responding
color you out, white as clouds
the vessel is blind
keep it steady now
so steady now
i’m choking on these waves
slowly sinking, so comfortable below the sea
you’re the captain of this ship
but i don’t see you down here with me
sinking blind vessel
keep me steady now
so steady now”
Light Black – Incredible and lovely two piece (Walter Kappler and Paul Hundeby of City of Ifa) band from Boulder, Colorado.
Epic blend of screamo, post-rock, twinkle emo, ambient and experimental tunes. Sometimes harsh, sometimes relaxed and always covered in great soundwalls. Perfect balance between basement and campfire (well-meant) feelings. My personal highlights are “Ex Wives” (reminds me a bit of “if i were a frog” by in the wake of giants, nice intro tough), “Todd Packer” and “Clouds”.
Nothing more to say…check them out, really good stuff.
They also released a collection of B-sides from “Ex Wives” here and there’s gonna be a 3-way split with Things Fall Apart and City Of Ifa released soon.
