MP3: Mothlite – Zebras
After recently working as a collaborator with Æthenor, Miracle and Grumbling Fur as well as his work as part of Ulver, O’Sullivan felt it was time to return Mothlite to work on something personal. O’Sullivan said, “All the other things are collaborations and there’s a communal interest, but with Mothlite the content is quite personal and to do with me. It’s quite easy to neglect, particularly when you’re in a bit of a shit storm as I was the past couple of years.”
The album was a chance for O’Sullivan to break free of the confines of genre, taking influence from Tears For Fears and Kate Bush through the industrial and gothic textures of DAF, The Cure, Coil and Dead Can Dance to the hardcore punk of his own roots.
Mothlite will showcase the new album on May 2 @ Tabernacle, London, UK w/ North Atlantic Oscillation.
