Those grooves (which become increasingly massive) very effectively seize the head and compel movement, and while you’re bobbing along in sync with them, the band stretch their spellcasting in further directions with an array of guitar melodies — exotic, reptilian, psychedelic ones — and additional doses of wrenching, mind-wrecking, deeply perilous shimmering and shattering tones, along with chanted vocals that provide no comfort either… [MORE…]

LIGHT THIS CITY will enter Castle Ultimate Studios with Zack Ohren to record their fifth full-length LP in December. Vocalist Laura Nichol states, “Performing and writing with LIGHT THIS CITY has never stopped being fun. Now that I have the perspective from a guitarist/vocalist standpoint, I love to be able to switch it up and engage an audience with the freedom of only my voice, words, and a microphone in my hand. The personality that LIGHT THIS CITY‘s music and influences draw out of me is something that I really enjoy exploring and embodying. While Heartsounds feels like an exhilarating challenge every time I step onstage, when I’m in front of an audience with LIGHT THIS CITY, I always feel at home. I don’t know if I could have both of those feelings with one band, but luckily, I have two to round it out!” [MORE…]
