To The Wedding is the California-based project created by multi-instrumentalist Lauren Grubb. After releasing the absolutely breathtaking Silver Currents in 2014, the project has remained mostly quiet. Anyone familiar with Silver Currents, which illuminated the hearts and minds of many, has no doubt been eagerly awaiting further enchantments from TTW; we certainly have been. It is a true-coming dream for us to exclusively premiere a brand new track from To The Wedding for you today.
“Brightest Light” is slow-burning psych-gaze at its smoldering finest. The song's atmosphere is both heady and trance-inducing; the melody equal parts exquisite and devastating. Within the nuanced haze of crushing guitar and crashing drums, Grubb's rich vocals sound as powerful as ever. For those of you eternally searching for a smoky, psych-tinged reverie in which you can lose yourself, here’s the door. We’re right behind you.
The song is taken from the forthcoming Alternative F̷acts: A Shoegaze Resistance Compilation, which is set for release on March 17, 2017 via DKFM. The compilation features a top tier collective of shoegaze and dream pop artists taking a stand against the tyranny we're all facing in our current political reality. All proceeds from this compilation will be split evenly between Planned Parenthood and the A.C.L.U.
