MLP / Mannequin Records / 2013
lim. to 300 copies
Mannequin Records is simply elated to present the debut 12'' EP from Light House.
Light House have been kicking around Portland for two years. The band
contains Chris Relyea, an ex member from The Rapture, Dawn Sharp and
Brooks Blackhawk from Atriarch. Excellent dark wave with spacious mixes,
minimal synths, reverb drenched guitars and eerie malevolent vocals
that either pierces your heart or your spinal cord (I haven’t decided
which as yet, but Dawn Sharp is most excellent).
Originally released in United States by Freee record label in 2012 and
recorded on pure analog tape, ‘In Their Image’ EP illuminates the
romantic and elemental nature of Light House's dreamlike sound, a moody,
theatrical dirge which brings to mind classic 4AD acts such as Dead Can
Dance and This Mortal Coil.
To celebrate this relaunch Light House will be touring America and
Europe, hitting the West Coast in mid June to coincide with Warm
Leatherette in San Francisco, then onto New York and making their way
along the East Coast.
Light House is music that lulls the Etheric body awake, in a hypotetical world where Tropic Of Cancer meets Soft Metals.
