Long term MM faves Lightning Dust, the Vancouver based duo of Amber Webber and Josh Wells, formerly of Black Mountain have announced their fourth album, Spectre.
It will be released on October 4th, via Western Vinyl and the band have also shared lead single Devoted To.
Webber wrote the moving and haunting songs on Spectre during a challenging, introspective time of self-discovery that resulted in her rededication to music. It is a collection of songs that range from expertly sculpted folk-rock ear candy, to sparse Judee Sill-esque ballads consisting of little more than piano and voice.
Written during the devastating forest fires that filled her hometown of Vancouver with smoke and a sense of apocalyptic doom, album opener Devoted To captures Webber’s resilience and determination to reestablish her creative independence as she sings “I will find my way back in even if I never sleep…Gotta find my way back in, it’s all that I believe.”
