Just a note that there’s only one day left to watch the excellent Homeland pilot on 4OD – more on that tomorrow.
This is yet another electro-goth act from Brooklyn: what makes Light Asylum stand out are Shannon Funchess’s fantastic vocals. (Is it bad that I thought that was a man singing?) The Guardian compared her to a cross between Alison Moyet and Andrew Eldritch.
Light Asylum were a huge hit at SXSW last week, and though their synthy sound is unfashionably dated (think: Yazoo), a lot of people will like this.
