Light Asylum In Tension EP on 12" Vinyl
At once brutal and romantic, Light Asylum exists in that space where industrial gives way to goth, where the city meets the outer regions under the cover of night. Four songs here that showcase Shannon Funchess and Bruno Coviello's fluid synth pop attack that shifts elegantly from mid-tempo industrial dance to subliminal future ballads that are deceptively uplifting when considering Light Asylum's relentless dark sheen. Calling Funchess a commanding lead singer is an understatement; there is a heaviness and attack in her vocal delivery that is downright sinister. This is contemporary synth pop to a tee that truly comes to life during their revered live performances.
