FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
December 29, 2020 – US dark ambient act WITHERING OF LIGHT has unveiled their new full-length album, Reliquary.
Reliquary is available now on digital and CD formats. Vinyl LP format tentatively due in February.
The concept behind this album became how each of the words that are the titles took me out of the mundane everyday and put my mind in somewhat of a different state.
For instance, “Reliquary” is a vessel that contains a sacred or holy relic of some kind. We as humans fetishize objects, moments, memories. Even your mind can become a reliquary harboring the sacred, profane and otherwise. Each of these words I found carried some kind of weight, a spectral resonance(hence that title) and the sounds here are the aural embodiment of these.
