ALightning Dust Plots Tour With The Cave Singers, Shares MP3 For “Never Seen” From Infinite Light LP

Are you prepared to cross into the Infinite Light? With each passing day, the sophomore release from Vancouver’s Lightning Dust draws ever more near, ready to envelop you in its lush arrangements and cosmic wash. With Infintie Light (Released August 4), Amber Webber and Josh Wells (core members of Black Mountain) have crafted a psych-pop journey about losing and rediscovering “the light of inspiration.” Now, as they prepare to give Infinite Light unto the world and ready for a September/October tour with spiritual brethren The Cave Singers, Lightning Dust share with you the mp3 for “Never Seen,” a moody deep cut from the album, that brings to mind a dark, electro “Hounds of Love.”

“Never Seen” recently premiered on Stereogum, which said of the track: “…taking it in a gothy, more theatrical direction, Amber Webber chews into the scenery for ‘Never Seen’…and it’s last couple minutes are worthy of Siouxsie Sioux (at least in spirit). ‘Never Seen’ goes in a different, aesthetically linked direction than the Suicide/synth-pop/country anthem overlap of ‘I Knew,’ which bodes well for the collection on a whole.”

Lyrics for “Never Seen”: Twilight skies the groan of highway aisles within the city’s sights/Made us hear stories, made it through the days in a different way/To be carried away so free/To never seen scenery/Swept up tides and familiar lines, we were made to roam/So we dusted off dreams, left no room in between and apologized/To be carried away so free/To be carried away so free/God leave us a piece/Now that you’re gone/So we can feast/Don’t fall for too long/I can touch, spread out with love/Feeding the flames high/Feeding the fire/Nothing follows without seeking it out/Let it rain down/Oh what a feeling to travel so far, the shine from the evening star/Oh somewhere hidden as far as the stars to live our lives this way

Enjoy the moody electro of “Never Seen”

In June, Lightning Dust was featured on NPR’s tastemaking All Songs Considered, where host Bob Boilen played Infinite Light’s closing track “Take It Home,” of which Boilen said: “A good number of the songs on the record are piano based, recorded when the duo spent 5 days in a studio with a Steinway; though the arrangements are more lush than their first record. The track I love best is the CDs closing cut, this one feels more like an outtake from an early King Crimson record.”

In September, Lightning Dust will tour North America with Seattle’s The Cave Singers, making for a tour bill made in the heavens – at least for us with with our eyes fixed on the cosmos.
