Description

Dark Age, the second album from Mothlite (Daniel O'Sullivan - Ulver) Mothlite is the brainchild of Daniel O'Sullivan. A prolific composer and multi-instrumentalist, O'Sullivan is a member of Ulver and a regular collaborator with Sunn O))), Guapo, Æthenor, Miracle and Grumbling Fur. Mothlite allows him to move in different musical directions to those taken by his other projects, recalling the deepest remnants of 80's sounds (Talk Talk, Japan, Cocteau Twins) and fusing it with an innovative, forward-thinking approach to programming and sound design. The result is a grandiose gothic-pop euphoria that retains a subliminally progressive musical depth and O'Sullivan's songwriting collaborations with The Big Pink and Ulver are apparent in Mothlite's keen sense of production and lush atmospheric arrangements. Mothlite transcend any obvious reference point and follow a most novel path of paradoxes. Love, death, death of love, self-loathing, megalomania. All dipped in a thick treacly molasses of ecstatic melody. The vinyl edition of Dark Age is packed in a 5 colour gatefold sleeve with a matt laminate finish and the inner bag is on uncoated stock with 2 colour pantone print.
