Virginia duo Illiterate Light will release their debut EP, Sweet Beast, January 18, 2019.
Sweet Beast is the cry of an uncontrollable hidden inner self: hidden because the good comes with the bad, and love comes with imperfections. Recorded in 2018, in both Richmond, VA and Nashville, TN, sessions for the record were deliberate… in and out and done. No messing around… just pure momentum and a desire to experiment.
Translating Illiterate Light’s live show’s excitement to the studio was aided by Adrian Olsen (Natalie Prass/Foxygen) and Vance Powell (Jack White/Chris Stapleton), who knew exactly how to move with the raw energy and push the guys into new sonic territory. From political hopelessness to longing for love, Sweet Beast is a cathartic call for the modern moment.
