Native Lights – “Black Wall Street” (Stereogum Premiere)

Native Lights combines the forces of post-rock veterans Bryce Chambers of Ester Drang and Johnathon Ford of Unwed Sailor. The result is a sound that’s as deep and dark as classic shoegazers like My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive, but on an even grander scale. “Black Wall Street” immediately pulls you into a glittering abyss before it veers off into a window-shattering chorus. The duo honed their epic sound between recording in an abandoned cattle auction facility in rural Oklahoma and mixing with Kevin Ratterman, who has worked with bands like Young Widows, My Morning Jacket, and Maserati. Hear the track below.
