Published Jun 27, 2019It's been a long time since Lightning Dust shared their cosmic indie rock with us, but the duo of former Black Mountain members Josh Wells and Amber Webber are back with a brand new album.
Called Spectre, the album marks the first time Lightning Dust has been the pair's sole pursuit. In 2017, they both left Black Mountain, and Webber spent 2018 back at school and trying out a new career.
"It made me realize that art and music are still my light," she said of her time off. "Spectre is my journey. It's for all the women warriors that have been battling throughout life looking for a place to express themselves that feels inclusive and inspiring. It's about finding yourself when no one is paying attention and inventing a new way of creating that feels honest and sincere. I truly feel that women, especially as we age, are underrepresented. That was truly the driving force to creating this album."
Spectre will arrive on October 4 via Western Vinyl. Until then, you can stream the record's newly shared "Devoted To" below.
Lightning Dust also have a handful of upcoming tour dates, all of which see them performing alongside David Berman's Purple Mountains. Find all of the pertinent info below.
