Ghosts… is the result of guitarist/vocalist Marc Changnon, bassist Jered Johnson, and drummer Adam Young’s spontaneous and intuitive connection. After releasing a lo-fi acoustic album, 2 Windows in 2011 and 2015’s post rock leaning Emerge From The Illusion, LCS reformed with a new lineup and progressed into an artistic and stylistic rebirth with Ghosts… Progressive dynamics, one-of-a-kind vocals, channeled lyrics, and intricately intertwined passages force through unconventional compositions, culminating in colossal sound walls. As a result, a profound emotional and psychological trip is built.
Light Creates Shadow employs conceptual frameworks to transport the listener on an inner journey through the creative process, psyche, and a confrontation with the Shadow, buried deep within the subconscious mind. This alchemical concoction provides the audience with a blank canvas on which to paint their own perception. With a novel concept, genre-defining music, and intriguing live presentation that engages the audience in a new way, LCS has positioned themselves to have breakthrough potential.
“We believe music that explores the depths of what is possible between audience and artist, should be transparent about its intentions,” explains Changnon. “To provide context, I’m inferring that if a band are conduits for channeled meaning, healing and collective synchronicity, then that same transference is innately present in the connection with the listener. We are going to explore this synchronistic relationship through a companion interactive web experience that will intrigue even the most hardened skeptics.”
Light Creates Shadow draw influences from artists such as; TOOL, Pink Floyd, Mastodon, Isis, Emma Ruth Rundle to name a few. But LCS believe they are establishing their own path and feel their sound is authentically their own. “We are looking to create a following predicated on re-introducing heavy music to the depths of intellect, emotion, and soul, as an experiential necessity. I believe that art is at its peak when you are forced to be an active participant in the exchange.” ✪
