GRIDFAILURE begins a new EP series under the collective title When The Lights Go Out, as Invisible Oranges is now streaming the seven-track first volume of the series ahead of its release on Halloween.
The When The Lights Go Out series has been formed in order to broadcast the more ethereal, ambient, and abstract soundscapes of GRIDFAILURE’s sound, attempting to hone-in on the otherworldly horror from which the outfit metastasized last year. The passages within the series will bear sparse percussion or distinct lyrical and vocal elements, rather focusing on atmospheric horror soundscapes and supernatural auras, invoking one’s childhood fears while aiming at creating new ones within the listener.
When The Lights Go Out Vol. I delivers a half hour of harrowing wailing, howling, and undiscernible creep-out aura through seven odd movements, primed specifically for the Halloween season. GRIDFAILURE‘s David Brenner provides waves of vocals, guitars, bass, keyboards, synth, theremin, percussion, and more, with vocal contributions from Liz Ciavarella-Brenner and Faith Ciavarella, and percussion and guitar elements from Robert Levitt.

If Disambiguation isn’t the gothic ambient album of the summer, it’s certainly the ideal soundtrack for sunbathing alone on a float at an abandoned community pool. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jul 12, 2018
