Brooklyn synth duo Light Asylum blew my mind when I caught their live set back in the spring of 2010. Singer Shannon Funchess, who has also worked with !!! and Teengirl Fantasy, has an incredible presence that is both terrifying and utterly captivating. The new self-released ep In Tension is a highly satisfying introduction to the duo’s sound. Check out the opening track “A Certain Someone”, as well as the video for “Dark Allies” below.
You can find In Tension on iTunes.
