RECOMMENDATION OF THE WEEK: Lacing - Swirl
Updated: Oct 30, 2019
Lacing’s recent single, “Swirl”, is a lilted shoegaze somersault of ethereal atmospherics and hammering, distorted conflagrations. The song feels like laying in the grass on a summer night, contemplatively watching the sky, a burst of supernovas eventually roll in, set off by ample guitar fuzz. “Swirl” encapsulates the Tennessee 4-piece’s ability to turn heavy, solemn trauma into crackling catharsis, a tempered balance of both light and dark.
