Light Asylum, the Brooklyn, New York, coldwave electro duo consisting of Shannon Funchess and Bruno Coviello, played for the first time in Athens last Sunday. Their hour-long set at the Death Disco club took us to the darkest recesses of EBM, with relentless electropunk and industrial rhythms creating a nightmarish disco soundscape. Light Asylum conjure up the image of a Grace Jones-fronted Suicide playing as the house band of Fangtasia - now that's a True Blood episode I wouldn't want to miss!
Check out below "Knights and Week Ends", one of the tracks from the duo's debut EP "In Tension", as performed in Athens and click here to see their latest Facebook cover photo taken in front of the Parthenon:
