Lightning Bug release A Color Of The Sky on June 25th.
Lightning Bug have introduced their new album with a super first single entitled The Right Thing Is Hard To Do.
“Here I wanted to connect how the struggles and flaws within the individual are mirrored in the greater problems of society,” Audrey Kang says of the track.
“How do we as individuals know we are on the right path? How do we as a society, as a species, know we are on the right path?”
“So I started with myself, and my own struggles, touching on how I hide myself away from other people, on my stage fright, on my inability to be vulnerable, on this feeling I used to have that I needed to prove I was worthy of being alive.”
“Then I tried to connect these struggles outward to global issues like xenophobia, arbitrary borders, the lines we draw between ourselves and the environment, and the ways we sacrifice the health of the planet for human convenience.”
Recorded in a makeshift studio in the Catskills, A Color Of The Sky might be the third record from Lightning Bug but in fact marks a series of firsts for the collective: their first with Fat Possum; their first recording as a live band, and the first with Dane Hagen and Vincent Puleo joining up as as full-time members.
