Chicago’s V.V. Lightbody coined herself as “nap rock”, but she’s the first to admit how much her sound is changing. Make a Shrine or Burn It, her much-anticipated Sophomore LP, comes out May 1st, 2020 on Acrophase records.
Make a Shrine or Burn It is V.V. Lightbody's most deliberate work yet. Much like the title, she leaves cryptic metaphors behind, delivering songs with a stunning and almost bone-dry vocal. The album explores the chaos of short-yet-meaningful relationships, anti-jealousy, existential dread, bliss, anger, and the acceptance of reality. Expect to hear dark acoustic guitars, tight snares, unhinged Farfisa solos, and in the place of flutes, stabbing saxophones. MASOBI features cinematic string sections by Macie Stewart of OHMME, whose tear-worthy arrangements were recently featured on Whitney’s Valleys. Engineered by Dave Vettraino (Lala Lala, Makaya McCraven, Deeper), the record features some of Chicago’s most talented musicians who often accompany her on stage.
