Swedish Indie Rock band Black Light White Light has shared the lead track from their latest album, The Admirer, along with an official music video. A nod to a classic era and the sounds that defined it, ‘Epilepsy’ meanders along memory lane, evoking a jangly guitar-based palette akin to the ‘60s. Lead singer Martin Ejlertsen free-associates his way through themes of disorientation and existential questioning, themes that carry through the album, where the band touches on apathy, endings, ambition, and fame.

When asked to speak on the album, the band said: “I think the album presents the band’s most personal, versatile and certainly most adventurous release to date. It delivers psychedelic rock, cosmic pop, and piano-driven ballads with wandering melodies, layers of keyboards, sizzling delay guitars, and manipulated effects to an intoxicating mix that jumps and has plenty of edge in 10 songs with personal lyrics about pain, doubt, love and confusion. My most personal songs to date.”

It is worth noting that Kennie Takahashi, an engineer behind The Black Keys, mixed the album, with mastering done by musician Casper Hesselager and Arctic Monkeys’ engineer Matt Colton. The demos for the project were recorded at Viktoria Studio but recorded and finalised at Tambourine Studio by Swedish technician Joar Sylvan.
