Folding Legs Announce Drown in Light EP
Brooklyn-based alt-rock/indie-pop quartet Folding Legs (whose members hail from New York City, Vienna and Stockholm) have developed a distinctive melodic sound that incorporates diverse influences from Talking Heads, Radiohead, Bootsy Collins and Laurie Anderson to Swedish folklore, performance art and surrealist Czech filmmaker Jan Švankmajer. Their debut 5-track EP 'Drown In Light' brings into sharp focus their thunderous sonic panorama supplanted by skilled musicianship, rich melodies, expressive vocals and vivid, self-reflecting storytelling. In celebration of the release, the band has shared the EP track "Drown in Light".

The frenetic stomp of "This Glass House" begins the journey of Drown in Light with the shattering of a relationship and the strength and clarity that come after. "Doubletime" starts with a sparse piano melody that is overtaken by front woman Katharina Stenbeck's seductive vocal as she addresses a lover she keeps urging to "break the silence". Her intimacy and directness is underpinned by a fearless sound that alternates between volcanic and pastoral with ease. The mesmerizing "Spring on 93rd St" is a nostalgic lament for an unfaithful partner with a delicate melancholic arrangement. This is the sound of a band unafraid to be defiantly honest with a disarming sound that can be as bold and angular as it is fragile and crystalline.
