Artist Spotlight: LITE
With the band's latest record Past, Present, Future, LITE has crafted a short but incredibly effective explosion of math-influenced instrumental rock. There are tons of highs and lows, with plenty in between. It's incredibly dynamic, sounding like a more energized You Slut!, Enemies, and And So I Watch You From Afar.
"Bond" blows by, while "Circle" takes its time with a more relaxed and deliberate atmosphere. It is very welcome to hear such diversity within a genre known for making some of the most gimmicky and contrived music out there. However, LITE has made one hell of a little record that takes all the genre's best qualities and mixes them with the band's own style. This is the perfect slice of quirky and off-kilter music you didn't know you wanted.
