Lightning Bug

Lightning Bug returns with sophomore LP “October Song,” plays Trans-Pecos 11.24

Audrey Kang made waves in 2015 with cult debut LP Floaters, a lush, indietronic project replete with tactile guitars, dissonant electronic keys, and lurid songwriting. Kang returned earlier this year with a full band for Lightning Bug’s sophomore effort, October Song, further delivering off-kilter earworms and killer experimental indie pop. Title track “October Song, pt. ii” is a cool demonstration of the outfit’s penchant for soft, melodious songwriting and synth-driven, easy-going grooves; stream it below, and catch Lightning Bug on November 24th at Trans-Pecos, supporting Bethlehem Steel, Ben Seretan, and Sinai Vessel. —Connor Beckett McInerney

   

Lightning Bug brings atmospheric folk to Baby's All Right 07.08

New York's indie-pop quartet Lightning Bug is playing at Baby's All Right on July 8th, at the release show for the immigrant rights benefit compilation entitled "So Many Singing." Lightning Bug's most recent EP, 'the torment of love,' showcases the band's affinity for atmospheric bedroom pop, as well as melodic folk-rock sensibilities reminiscent of Joni Mitchell. - Ethan Ames
