The Lightness Of Being are an accomplished London-based alternative rock outfit, formed in 2010.
With key influences panning from Deftones, Queens of the Stone Age and Mastodon, through to At the Drive-In, the four-piece deliver a sound that is atmospheric, hefty and engulfing.
The band have just dropped a new track, ‘Cave’, and they release their new EP, ‘Diversions’, through all stores on Friday 1st June.
To date, the impressive quartet have brought out two EPs: ‘Directions’ and ‘Movements’, with both releases having helped to cement their place within the vibrant scene of the UK capital, with consecutive and constant shows around the city also assisting the band’s progress and growing fan base.
The Lightness Of Being are ripe to break out to the rest of the country and beyond with their new EP, ‘Diversions’. Comprised of three killer tracks, including their forthcoming single, ‘Bottomfeeder’, it is a record that demands your attention.
Sam West, guitarist from the band, elaborates on the direction of the new release: “‘Diversions’ is our third EP, and it’s a significant progression. It’s darker, dynamic, and certainly more unsettling than past releases. Tracks vary in pace and tone, from the metal-infused riffs and force of ‘Bottomfeeder’ to the fuzz-driven groove of ‘Refute’, and to the melancholy build and overdriven outro of ‘Cave’. It is a record
that we are immensely proud of.”
‘DIVERSIONS’, THE THIRD EP FROM THE LIGHTNESS OF BEING, WILL BE RELEASED ON JUNE 1.
