Dark, dynamic and brutally beautiful, New York duo LIGHT ASYLUM will bring their famously mighty live show to Australia for the first time this June. Just announced to play the Vivid LIVE, they also perform at Phoenix Public House, Friday 1st June, presented by Grouse Queer Party and Penny Drop.
Throwing a midnight shadow that’s impossible to ignore, on their 2010 EP, “In Tension” Shannon Funchess & Bruno Coviello used industrial electronica, driving ‘80s synthesizers and pitch-black imagery to powerful effect.
Having guested with TV On The Radio and Ford & Lopatin, frontwoman Funchess is undoubtedly the real deal – described by The Guardian as “a cyborg soul girl in the manner of Grace Jones”, and ""a star-in-the-making"" by Pitchfork Media.
Their debut full-length has been a long time coming - out May 4th through Mexican Summer/Co-op – before they land on our shores for a debut hypnotism in the live sense.
