This White Light

New band; This White Light ft. Greg Anderson (SUNN O))), Goatsnake – listen here…

This White Light is the name of a new band featuring Greg Anderson/guitar (SUNN O))), Goatsnake) and Jade Devitt/drums (Lucky Me, Gale Forces), Bryan Herweg/bass (Pelican) and vocals from Jen Wood (solo artist and formerly of Tattle Tale and collaborator with the Postal Service).

The four-piece have been working on material and plan to record on April 9th to the 13th at Josh Hommes’ Pink Duck studios, with him producing the recordings, we can hear one of the demo tracks “Winter Flowers” here;

In March 2017, Greg Anderson and Jade Devitt began to make music with one another again, having previously played together in the nineties as Engine Kid. Starting with the formula of extreme dynamics that they had perfected in the years previous as Engine Kid, the pair have added their 20+ years of musical experience, and taken the music in a new and different direction. Chance encounters and serendipitous moments fortified the final line up of This White Light with the addition of Bryan Herweg and Jen Wood.

This White Light explore the contrast of darkness & light. Their music is delicate when called for, powerful when necessary.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
