Lightning Bug Unveil New Single ‘Opus’

    Lightning Bug have released a new single, ‘Opus’, lifted from their forthcoming album No Paradise. Following lead outing ‘December Song’, the track comes paired with an animated video entirely hand-drawn by the band’s Dane Hagen, with color and backgrounds by Melanie Kleid, and based on a ghost story written by singer Audrey Kang. Watch and listen below.

    “We imagined ‘Opus’ as a dystopian folk song written for a post-apocalyptic fantasy saga,” the band explained in a press release. “Or maybe it’s for the saga we’re all living in, as every year our humanity resigns itself to a world turning faster towards destruction.”

    No Paradise comes out on May 2. Read our Artist Spotlight interview with Lightning Bug.
