Lewis Goldmark is the name of the new project from Liam Judson, best known for his work with Belles Will Ring and his production work with bands such as Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever and Cloud Control. ‘Twilighting‘ is his debut single and the first taste of a full-length album, set for release in 2020.
The single is a warm and wistful slice of indie guitar pop. There’s a nostalgic and atmospheric psychedelic streak winding through the chiming six-string action that recalls the more subtle moments of Sonic Youth. There’s also a super-catchy chorus that hits the melodic heights of bands such as The Chills.
“Twilighting is a way of me describing the moment just before sleep where your brain wanders off into the craziest thoughts and you accept them – only to realise how crazy they are if you happen to snap out of it and wake up. The fact that you don’t see them as strange thoughts when they’re happening is interesting to me. It’s the twilight of going to sleep. The guitars are meant to glow and represent the purple and pinks of late sunset.”
