Bright in No Light
The Dhoon = New Order + Suicide + Faith-era The Cure
I appreciated Bright in No Light after my second listen quite a bit more than the first—which was on a sunny day in busy traffic. Listening while outdoors at night happens to be the better way to get into this music. Crickets providing an additional sonic ladder, outside of my headphones, might have helped as well. Lyrically, there are moments on Bright in No Light that create a mental image of a goth coal miner laboring over his final work. If this, Poe references or the occasionally whispered lyric are your kind of thing, check out The Dhoon. If not, but you enjoy well constructed bass lines, baritone vocals, warm synths and tasteful use of echo, all of those things are abundant on Bright in No Light.
