BLACKWATER HOLYLIGHT's New Song "Motorcycle" Is Fuzzy, Hazy Doom For The Masses
Portland, OR doom unit Blackwater Holylight will release Veils Of Winter on October 11 and are streaming their hazy, fuzzy-as-fuck new single "Motorcycle". Here's what bassist and vocalist Allison Faris had to say about the song.
"The process of this album was vastly different from our first record. One, because we recorded it over the course of a few weeks, whereas the first record was over the course of about a year. And two, this album was a true collaboration between the five of us. Each of us had extremely equal parts in writing and producing, we all bounced ideas off each together, and we all had a say in what was going on during every part of the process."
"One of our favorite things about this album is that because it was so collaborative, we didn't compartmentalize ourselves into one vibe. It's heavy, psychedelic, pop, shoegaze, doom, grunge, melodic and more. The whole process was extremely organic and natural for us, we were just being ourselves."
Veils Of Winter is Blackwater Holylight's first with new guitarist Mikayla Mayhew and drummer Eliese Dorsay. You can catch the quintet on tour later this year with both Thou and Monolord. Pre-order the record here.
