Recorded over the space of two years from a variety of sessions, THE LIGHT follows 2012's LION EATER, their most popular album to date, downloaded tons of times on their Bandcamp and featuring the song "Save the Leaves", whose music video inexplicably got some over 25k views on YouTube, despite little promotion.
Thus, with multiple sessions to comb through, the band wound up completing 36 songs in their traditional budget-basement way, often taking single mono-input takes and manipulating them until they sound like textural, full-bore studio creations. With the most songs they had ever recorded at one time, the duo of Evan & Dave pared it down to a simple 11 track stunner, which Seth Cowan of electronic act Poor Doctor Awesome having noted that he "can't hear any influences on it," further proving the notion that 1> Evan & Dave are absolutely crazy, and 2> they continue to make music in their own realm, creating sounds that don't sound like much of anything else, but with a legit and powerful pop bent to their abstract and sometimes frighteningly dark creations.
