“Diastolic” from Lightfoils’ upcoming album Hierarchy, to be released on July 8th, is a vast dreamscape of punchy bass and drums juxtaposed against the ethereal vocals of lead singer Jane Zabeth. Dual guitars that sound like ocean waves round out the sound to create a new direction within the umbrella of ‘shoegaze.’ The production is helmed by an unlikely captain – Chicago metal legend Sanford Parker (Buried at Sea). His experience with mixing much heavier bands like Pelican is clearest in his handling of Lightfoils’ rhythm section and the results are sonically fascinating. Lightfoils includes former members of Airiel and Panda Riot.
