Well, we hear at Somewherecold Records and of course Tombstones in Their Eyes have been anxiously waiting the official launch of their newest album Looking for a Light. Quintessentially TITE, Looking for the Light opens with a growl and spins you into a psychic blur. Swirling guitars and reverb drenched vocals, as expected, are revved up on this outing, creating a move forward for the band’s sound. There is still that touch of shoegaze and dreampop oriented influences mixed in this one, but the results are altogether undefinable and make for a lesson is what psych-rock should move toward. Claustrophobic and raw, Looking for a Light lives up to the album’s name. Whether the “light” is there to be found is one of the questions the album asks and this makes the Looking for the Light a vulnerable as well as intrinsically important album for our times.
Being released on both CD and Vinyl as well as digital download on April 20th, Tombstones in Their Eyes: Looking for the Light proves that the band is important, but in terms of their sonic accomplishments and the vulnerability in their lyrical and musical content.
