Lights That Change – ‘Voices’

lights-that-change-voices

Ear To Ear Records presents ‘Voices‘, the latest single from Lights That Change! Summoning the spirit of This Mortal Coil, Dance Can Dance and Cocteau Twins, this dream popper has an 80s feel with a dark edge that reaches into the depths. Lights That Change is the work of Welsh music maker Marc Joy, who is joined on ‘Voices’ by vocalist Rebecca Plain (of Golden Fable) and Mal Holmes (of Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark).

sounds-of-sputnik-new-born

Sounds of Sputnik’s debut album ‘New Born’ was released this week, featuring the talents of dream pop duo Ummagma. Take a peek at the new video for ‘Light Scheme’ below. The Moscow-based artist (Roma Kalitkin) blends his love for post rock and shoegaze with a bunch of remixes thrown in too! A number of notable guests have contributed, including drummer Graham Bonnar (Swervedriver/ Brian Jonestown Massacre), producers Fran Ashcroft (Damon Albarn, Lords of Acid) and Marc Joy (Primal Scream, Oasis) plus many more! It’s very much an international affair, a melding of creative minds from Ukraine and Russia (during a time of social upheaval). Roma’s twenty plus years of playing with various post punk and shoegaze acts has paid off – pick up ‘New Born’ via Ear To Ear Records.
