Mount Moriah shared "Bright Light" from their forthcoming new album Miracle Temple via SPIN today.
In their premiere, SPIN described the track as a "luminous Southern-rock shuffler."
Listen & share "Bright Light" now at the Merge SoundCloud page
Where 2011's Mount Moriah tended towards the simpler, Miracle Temple boasts fuller arrangements, replete with forceful vocals and lyrics that read like prize-winning poetry. The instrumentation's more soulful, the choruses more rambunctious, and the band's vision of the South is even more intricate -- and conflicted -- than it was before. No stone goes unturned: whether it's meditations on gender or reminisces of ex-lovers, Miracle Temple supplies both eloquence & rock 'n' roll in abundance.
Miracle Temple is available for pre-order now in the Merge store on CD and LP. LP pre-orders will receive a free Merge slipmat. Mount Moriah’s self-titled debut is now available on LP in the Merge store as well.
