Light Asylum is the music alias of Shannon Funchess, vocalist and songwriter who used to work with many music acts (including famous band Tv on the Radio), and Bruno Coviello. This year they have finally released self-titled debut full-length album. It includes some new tracks as well as songs recorded even few years ago – and Angel Tongue belongs to the second group dating back to 2010.
For some, Light Asylum sounds like their fellow Americans from Hercules and Love Affair but for me they are completely different story. Much darker, much more into synthpop. And at least equally good.
