Lights in Forgotten Places is the first full length for Karma Voyage from Venice, available from January 27th, 2023 on CDs, vinyls and digital on Shyrec (IT) and Icy Cold Records (FR).
Anticipated by the single Shine, released on January 13th, Lights in Forgotten Places fluctuates between light and darkness, with the musicians painting the tracks with sounds coming from their different backgrounds, avoiding to be stuck on a single genre.
At the same time, it’s a bare album, far from clichés. Emotions pour on the listener giving freedom to create different visions, allthough it’s not lacking guitars crescendo and wild rides almost oniric, leading to nordic empty spaces. Not by chance, the track New Foundations features the unmistakable voice of Nils Ottensmeyer from Blue Angel Lounge.
Karma Voyage were born at the end of 2019 as neo-psych experimental band, with strong new wave influences. The project was started by Luca Castellaro (guitars and vocals) and Giuseppe Brunetti (solo guitars), with the addition in May 2020 of Alvise Scarpa (bass), Leonardo Sebastiani (synth) and Edoardo Dotta (drums).
Anticipated by the single Untold Desires, their first EP was released in October 2021 by the cult french label Icy Cold Records, and quickly got recognition in the neo psych underground, being even shared on Captain Beefart’s YouTube Channel.
From August to November 2022, with the new drummer Stefano Anoè, Karma Voyage recorded at Velvet Studio Lights in Forgotten Places, produced by Luca Castellaro.
