Artist: Black Light White Light
Label: Forward Backwards Recordings
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 20 April 2018

Black Light White Light's new album, Horizons, is released via Forward Backwards Recordings. Mining the rich territories of The Velvet Underground and the '90s Madchester movement, and combining with the sound of classic 4AD, the Danish / Swedish troupe Black Light White Light shine a light into dark corners often left alone in contemporary psychedelic indie-rock...

Based in Malmo, Sweden the musical project known as Black Light White Light is centred on the Danish singer, guitarist and songwriter Martin Ejlertsen. Horizons is the band's third album and channels classic rock of the 1960’s, bringing it up to date for a modern audience.

The album contains 11 songs (46 min, 31 sec). 'Forward Backwards' brought to mind Jefferson Airplane's 'White Rabbit' (1967) and, if you're a fan of the era, then you'll also no doubt spot many nods here and there to past acts.

Overall, an enjoyable, out of time collection that pretty much hits the nail on the head. Obviously it won't convert those who aren't fans of '60s rock, but there's enough quality material to make it at least worth checking out.
