Montreal’s drone noise-pop duo Lying Light in the Quiet have just released their brand new single Carrion, which is lifted from their debut album ‘Recovery’. Watch it via YouTube below.
“Carrion is another glimpse at ‘Recovery,’ a collection that came about over the course of multiple improvisational sessions that were recorded in the summer of 2015 … The result is a particularly ambitious form of ambient drone. On their second public track, the duo dip into territory reminiscent of Deftones at their most exploratory (think “Teenager”) before sending tremors through the song’s core with tremolo-picked guitar leads à la the most dramatic pieces from Explosions In The Sky.” – Michael McAndrew, The Line of Best Fit
‘Recovery,’ the duo’s debut album, was written as a series of recorded improvisations in Stooshinoff’s home studio during the summer of 2015. It is a record about the moments in which it was written: an impulsive expression of each musician’s emotions, and a conscious exploration of texture and space. Inspired by artists such as cLOUDDEAD and Bjork, the album hints at pop elements while maintaining a clear distance from the mainstream. It is spontaneous, patient, and filled with breathing-room.
