Ahead of the release of Lightfoils’ new album Chambers next Friday, November 16, 2018, the band shares its mesmerizing new video for “This Time Is Up”, the latest single that the Chicago shoegaze/dream-pop band off the new album.
Formed in 2010, Lightfoils’ sound is decidedly shoegaze, although the band subtly stretches the auditory boundaries of what the term embodies, honing in on a more cosmopolitan and ethereal sound. Clocking in at a breezy 30 minutes, Chambers represents a band that has mastered the atmospheric tone they’ve become synonymous with and continue to occupy, almost a decade after formation. The first track on the album “The Bitter Over” opens with dream-like guitars, transporting the listener away to distant shores – it’s the sound of Lightfoils leading the listener into the unknown. Frontwoman Jane Zabeth Nicholson’s vocals both echo in the background and dance in the front.
