Brightblack Morning Light

Brightblack Morning Light. The New Weird America. A picturesque vision of languid soundscapes harvesting the star filled sky. Stars. Remember those? If you can think back real hard on your childhood, there was probably a time where your dreams were based on these magical, shiny spheres. If you can’t remember, most of them dissipated along with the wishes of other city children resulting from the infecting effects of rampant pollution and artificial light. It’s hard to see the natural skyline when it’s constantly washed out. Since we’re on the subject, can we change the subject… Now.

BML are Nathan Shineywater and Rachael Hughes, both Southern souls, who drift in a swamp of atmospheric slow-mo blues slightly tinged in gospel roots.  Completely off the grid and from the land, it’s a Motion to Rejoice. A Spiritualized revivalism that is spatial, hypnotic, and laced with ambient harmony that can take you to the place of lost dreams if you let it.
