Light Asylum "Knights and Week-ends"
- Words: Thomas Rees

Brooklyn's Light Asylum just might be one of the biggest secrets in electronic music right now, but that is going to change soon. With an unstoppable sound that is as post-punk as it is synth-wave and a fierce live show fronted by !!!-collaborator Shannon Funchess, the duo is set to take the world by storm. With its punk beat, confrontational yet somehow romantic vocals, and crackling synth flourishes, "Knights and Week-ends" sounds like Alan Vega and Martin Rev taking over Joy Division. Playing this slice at a party will definitely get everyone out on the floor, shimmying and stomping like the world is about to end.
