LIGHT ASYLUM: HEART OF DUST
Light Asylum’s alpha frontwoman, Shannon Funchess, started her musical career as a Southern Baptist choirgirl, deep in the inbreeding grounds of rural Mississippi.
Far from her being some sort of darkwave televangelist, the gospel music was more of a welcome distraction from the actual churchgoing – so it comes as little surprise that Light Asylum’s first music video, for Heart of Dust, sees her rolling around in the mud like a synthgoth swine – behaviour we’d love to replicate in this heat if only we could gnaw ourselves free from these corporate shackles/taxing blogging careers.
[Light Asylum's self-titled album is out on the very awesome Mexican Summer now. You can catch their alumni Zig Zags in JUKE Vol.04, the Weird Issue, out soon.]
