Lightning Bug‘s October Song will be re-issued on Fat Possum on April 24.
Last year, Lightning Bug caught our attention with her sophomore album October Song, a project to “record the deepest experiences in the self and connect them outward,” explained the band’s mastermind Audrey Kang. It looks like we were not the only ones to put the Brooklyn singer-songwriter on our radar: Fat Possum will re-issue the record on vinyl next month.
Coming with this good news, Lightning Bug have shared a haunting, shoegaze-y new track, “The Onely Ones,” as well as a video that Kang co-directed with Owen Smith-Clark. In a statement, she also detailed: “You know when you experience a sudden extreme of emotion? Not quite anguish, not quite joy, but some unutterable mixture of both. This song is my attempt to express that.”
