Former Test Icicles front man, Dev Hynes plays London’s 229 as Lightspeed Champion on the 19th of July.
Spare, alluring instrumental sounds and thoughtful lyrics with crude track titles, Lightspeed Champion’s songs are a dichotomy of dark and light, salty and sweet. The semi-acoustic, country-rock and folk-pop sound can perhaps be explained by the album’s origins in Omaha Nebraska, where it was produced by Saddle Creek records’ Mike Mogis, who has most recently worked with Bright Eyes.
Working alongside members of The Faint, Cursive and Tilly And The Wall, and featuring guest vocalist Emmy The Great (who will also be providing support at 229), the album (Galaxy Of The Lost”, released by Domino on July 16) is a catchy autobiography, lighter sounding and more reflective than Hynes other projects to date.
