Today i got introduced me to a band i didn't know at all. Their name is Light Asylum.
After purcheasing all their productions, i'm still loop listening and still kind of stunned by these ultra deep vocals over the always enchanting sound of the synth. I'm pretty sure my review would probably result too emotional... and that's why i'm gonna let The New York Time Style Magazine do the talking this time:

"In some underground New York, Tokyo or London club, Shannon Funchess’s powerful contralto punches through the fog-filled stage — as does the spread of green laser light emanating from behind her. Funchess, the Light Asylum frontwoman, drums and sings, pogoing around in a mix of black leather and new-wave neon, like a punker, harder-edged Grace Jones possessed by the sensibilities of Ian Curtis. Her voice has appeared on tracks by bands like Telepathe and TV on the Radio, but it’s with this latest project (a duo, with Bruno Coviello on synth) that she has come into her own. Light Asylum is catchy but raw, music you can lose yourself in."

You can listen to more Light Asylum on Soundcloud or Myspace.
