Light Asylum "Knights and Week-ends"

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.
